DeSales Community Thanksgiving Dinner, 11/26

To all full-time residents, commuter day students, full-time faculty and full-time staff:

Thanksgiving is an important part of our nation’s religious tradition and a significant holiday for our people. We have many reasons to be thankful. I hope that each one of you spends time in the company of loved ones.

To get the Thanksgiving holiday off to a great start, I invite you to the DeSales Community Thanksgiving Dinner on Tuesday, November 26 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 DeSales University. Come out and support the mighty Bulldogs as they take on the Moravian College Greyhounds.

If you are not on the meal plan, but wish to attend, simply sign up at the link below by Wednesday, November 20.  We hope that you will be a part of this fun evening.

Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving Holiday!
