Amos big hit at Moravian luncheon

Thursday, December 20, 2012 by BERNIE O'HARE Special to the Bethlehem Press in Local News

Thanks to 50 volunteers from Moravian College, over 200 people were treated to a "seasonal feast" at Bethlehem's Cathedral Church of the Nativity Dec. 1. Guests were treated to turkey with all the trimmings, and were serenaded by Delta Omicron, the College's Music Fraternity.

But for the kids, the best part was a visit from Amos, Moravian's Greyhound Mascot, along with the coloring books his helpers handed out.

This is the 14th consecutive year that Moravian College has hosted a holiday luncheon for Bethlehem residents who might otherwise not be able to enjoy a seasonal feast.

Kate Cohen ('14), a work study student at the Center for Leadership and Service, led the planning. "The College is grateful for an opportunity to serve the community," she said. Katie Dantsin, director of leadership development, called it an "honor."

Tickets for this holiday luncheon were distributed to families by New Bethany Ministries, Victory House, Trinity Episcopal Church, Fountain Hill School Family Center, Fowler Family Center, Turning Point, and Clearview Elementary School Family Center.
