IT'S HAMMER TIME!

The many visitors to campus during this homecoming weekend will see its landscape change before their eyes, as Moravian College's chapter of Habitat for Humanity constructs the exterior frame of a single family house, then disassembles it for final construction elsewhere in the Lehigh Valley. The homecoming housing build began this morning at 9:00 a.m. near the 1742 oval, and will continue until 7:00 p.m. this evening. The completed frame will be assembled for viewing Saturday morning by about 11:00 a.m., in time for the homecoming parade. Soon after it will be taken down, trucked away and stored until the foundation is ready at a site in Bethlehem or elsewhere in the Valley. Moravian's HFH chapter will likely continue to work on the house at its permanent location. Volunteer slots for the homecoming build have been filled for weeks, so anyone else interested in pounding some nails will have to sign up for the next project. But visitors are welcome to come watch and share some encouraging words as the workers pound and saw their way through each two-hour shift.
