From Sam Maczko:
On October 1, Keith Bregman 95
represented Moravian at College Night at a high school in Wayne, N.J. John
Bregman (his father) and Ken Sepe and I went along to provide moral support.
We spoke to several students and their parents about the virtues of a liberal arts education
and answered many questions about Moravian College.
On October 19, John Bregman
and Robert Orbin were among those honored at the second annual Alumni Awards ceremony.
Our classmates were recognized for their work in organizing our recent 40th reunion.
Ken and Alice Sepe, Joe Castellano and his wife, JoAnne, and I and my wife, Irene,
attended the awards ceremony. A highlight of the evening was speaking with President
Hauperts sister, Naomi Haupert Boyer 31. She is 91years young and
received an award on behalf of her class for highest participation of giving by
a reunion class. We reminisced about the four years I spent at Moravian during
President Hauperts tenure. An especially fond memory was of visiting the Hauperts home
at Christmastime to see the traditional putz.
Homecoming was well attended,
and the Greyhounds defeated Wilkes College. It was great to see that the Omicron Gamma
Omega alumni had a nice tailgate party for their friends and brothers, including Monk
Morelli 58, Paul Noonan 60, Robert Dietrich 63, Bruce
Mumie 58, Joe Castellano, John Bregman, Ken Sepe, George
Hollendersky 59, and Roy Goshorn 58.
Debbie Herold Francis,
who had been our head majorette, sent news about an honor she recently received. After
graduation from Moravian, Debbie earned a masters degree from Temple University.

Noonan 60, Bruce and Marian Mumie, Dot Elliot and Daneen Jones Phelps 58
