and enthusiasm in restarting the Home Club has been most gratifying.
I would like to update you on the Home Club’s
fall activities, to share with you our plans for the spring, and

During the summer, 35 alumni attended the first organizational
meeting of the Home Club; and we welcomed approximately 150 incoming
students, alumni, and staff
at the annual Freshmen Welcome picnic at Rick ’77 and Leslie Kingston’s
home. In spite of winter weather, more than 400 alumni attended the Home Club’s
inaugural event on November 19 at the Moravian Book Shop. They not only enjoyed
an exclusive sale but also were privileged to enjoy a special performance by
the Moravian College Choir. The Home Club also had a presence at Houndfest and
at the Muhlenberg vs. Moravian game’s victory tent. We hope to increase
the numbers at the tent next year. In December 75 people gathered at the HUB
to decorate homemade gingerbread houses specially prepared by pastry chef and
Home Club member Martha Neff ’70. All these events were a great success.
Looking ahead, future events include a local winery trip on April 17 and a May
29 trip organized by Janet Barry ’92 to the World War II Memorial dedication
in Washington, D.C. By then we will be asking for volunteers for the Kingstons’ Freshman
Welcome picnic once again. We will need your help to assure another successful
