Florida Hounds Hear Update by President Thomforde

Florida alumni, parents of current students, and friends of the College and Seminary had two opportunities to meet with President Christopher Thomforde and Dr. Kathy Thomforde the first week of March. A Hound Hour at Carmine’s Top of the Bridge in Boca Raton attracted alumni from the Classes of 1949 through 2008.   Despite the group’s six-decade age span and variety of professions—medicine, law, insurance, environmental science, computer technology, and more—all were eager to hear the President’s “State of the College” message and to connect with other MC alumni in the mid-Gold Coast region.  

Regina LaCaruba ’05, who only recently moved to the area, was excited to connect with several old friends and to make new Moravian friends. Life Trustee Connie Burke ’50 brought her friend Alice Pulley, whose late husband had served with her on Moravian’s Board of Trustees. Boca Raton’s “Mr. Moravian,” Bill Werpehowski ’51, selected the great venue with water views and excellent service.

Later in the week, a luncheon was held at Laurel Oaks Country Club in Sarasota. Images of the College campus and community were projected during the reception and lunch, providing a great warm-up to President Thomforde’s remarks. Attendees included Millie Diefenderfer Thompson ’39, Rich Senker ’96, and former New Jersey residents Sandy Kromer Long ’61 and her husband Lionel, who made the four hour drive from their New Smyrna Beach home.
