ARMONK, N.Y. -- The Armonk Lions Club's 40th annual Fol de Rol began on Thursday night, with an array of rides available for kids.

Fol de Rol is French for country fair, according to Anita Cozza, who has been involved with the Lions for about 10 years and is the event's co-chairman. Cozza gave examples of the work that the organization has done locally, including distributing scholarships for Byram Hills High School, along donating of the NC4 van and police command center. In Wampus Brook Park, where the Fol de Rol is held, a rebuild of the gazebo and work on the bridge were also attributed to the Lions.

Cozza also talked about how the event, which has more than 75 vendors, has changed, including the addition of rides and departure of a flea market.

The Fol de Rol is the organization's only fundraiser, according to Anthony Baratta, who is the other co-chairman for the event. He also talked about the change in the type of vendors that has happened.
