Special Invite from Father O’Connor

Thanksgiving is an important part of our nation’s religious tradition and a significant holiday for our people. We have many reasons for gratitude. I hope that each of you spends time in the company of loved ones.
To get the Thanksgiving holiday off to a great start, I invite you to a DeSales Community Thanksgiving Dinner on Tuesday, November 23 in the University Center from 4:30 – 7:30 p.m.
The Student Life Office will provide music and entertainment for the dinner. The evening will conclude with a women’s basketball game at 6:00 p.m. and a men’s basketball game at 8:00 p.m. at Moravian College.  Come out and support the mighty Bulldogs as they defeat the puny Greyhounds of Moravian College.
If you are not on the meal plan, but wish to attend, simply complete the form below and return it to the attention of Mr. Rich Jacoby through campus mail by Thursday, November 11.
I hope that you can come to this fun evening. Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving.
