Human and Spiritual Aims:  check for daily updates--more information at end of page

Nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. Isaiah 60:3

Jesus said, “Indeed, some are last who will be first, and some are first who will be last.” Luke 13:30

Our Lord Jesus challenged the status quo when he dined with tax collectors and embraced those who society rejected. God of grace, inspire us to extend love to all, especially those who are marginalized. Amen.

Recent Programs and Meeting Held

Nov 15 Today we had 18 members in attendance along with our speaker for a total of 19. President Bill opened the meeting and reminded us that there will NOT be a meeting next week but anyone who is interested can join Walt for a road trip to Stroudsburg for their meeting. Meet with Walt by 11AM in the old “Food Lane” parking lot on Rte. 115 in Forks Twsp. Week after next will be a morning meeting at the City indoor market on Northampton St. Please be sure to bring any gift cards for the IU20 party by or before that meeting! Walt reported that there are 2 K-Kids meetings this afternoon- one at Cheston and one at Paxinosa. Ken told us that Lafayette College has chosen our scholarship recipient and she will be a speaker at a later date. James reported on the opioid awareness campaign. There will be another planning meeting on Nov. 27 at the Boys and Girls club followed by a second community information meeting at the Easton Middle School on Dec. 4. Ken then inducted our newest member, Andrew Glovas, representing the NCHGS/Sigal Museum. Welcome Andrew, and don’t forget to check our members website for those song lyrics! Skip then introduced our speaker for today, Dr. Alison Byerly, president of Lafayette College. She along with some of our members are looking forward to the Lafayette – Lehigh football game this Saturday and hopes we are rooting for the “right” team! She brought a slide presentation to show us ways they are growing the college. There are 51 areas of study across 4 academic divisions: humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and engineering. The college had over 8,000 applicants this past year. They have several plans for growth including a mixed use residence hall with retail space on the first level and student apartments above planned for McCartney and Cattel Sts., planned for the fall of 2019. There are also plans for a new science center – the Rockwell Integrated Science Center at a cost of $75million also planned for fall of 2019. There are now 75 employees in the Alpha bldg. in downtown Easton and the Bushkill Dr. location now houses the facilities and public safety divisions as well as parking. They are now in a $400 million capital campaign called Live Connected-Lead Change. The cost per student is actually $13,000 higher than the $68,000 per year tuition. 67% of the budget is for staff. Financial aid has to be a priority. The student/staff ratio is 10.5 to 1.
