Stories

Did you know 43 years ago what would become Godfrey Daniels was in fact a donut shop? Alex Radus, Chair of Development Committee, gave us a historical perspective on Godfrey Daniels and how it evolved to where it is today. Alex is a second generation GD guy thanks to his Uncle Doug. He is an award winning singer/songwriter and frequent performer at Godfreys.

Godfrey Daniels mission is to create and nurture the appreciation of traditional and contemporary folk music and performing arts by providing an intimate environment where professional artists, amateur performers and audience members will be enriched by the unique experience of live performance.

 
It provides wonderful rare access to the performers. They are also doing more outreach to younger children to provide exposure to the beauty of traditional and contemporary folk music.
 
Plan to attend an event there in the near future. Come early to see the ‘wall art’ depicting the many famous artists which have performed there over the years. Visit their website godfreydaniels.org for a wealth of information and upcoming performances. All shows are advance sale only. A real opportunity to enjoy professional artists up close and personal.
 
Thank you, Alex, for a very educational presentation and the “live music” even if you referenced the Steelers in the lyrics!
Live performance of  "You Are My Sunshine" by Godfrey Daniel's Alex Radus accompanied by Amy Cohen on kazoo!
 
 
Thursday, March 21, Mr. Petruzzelli will introduce us to the Kolbe Academy, a school for students recovering from addiction. A timely topic as never before.
 
Please plan to join us for what should prove to be educational and current. See you Thursday morning!
 
The 5 Area 2 Rotary Clubs (Bethlehem, Bethlehem Morning Star, Easton, Nazareth and Saucon Valley) gathered March 9th at Moravian College's Haupert Union Building in the 'Ole Book Shop' along with friends, family members, BASD acapella students, Victory House residents and volunteers from as far away as the Poconos and Lansdale. This Rotary Community Team packaged 40,000 meals for families in need in our Club areas.
 
I want to give a great big THANK YOU to Maria Esposito, Bethlehem Rotarian
 
Maria was extremely effective in obtaining the best media coverage we have ever had for this Area 2 event! The links below will take you to the Press Release distributed to over 85 outlets; Morning Call digital version (there was also a print version on Page 6 of the March 5 edition); Ch39 TV interview and Ch69 TV coverage at the actual event. The success of these efforts really helped to promote our event and Rotary throughout the community. 
 

 
 
The Upcoming Events as presented on the Bulletin is limited to approximately a 60 day window. If you go to the Morning Star Website, you will see the current full list of over 8 events covering all the way through the District Governor Changeover on June 24. There is a mixture of Morning Star, Area 2 and District events we are fully engaged in one way or another. It also is included in the Downloads section. This also gives an easy reference below.

The Monocacy Farm Project is a 10-acre organic farm on Bridle Path Road in Bethlehem. Many thanks to Amy Baringer and Bob Drake for introducing Morning Star Rotary to this agricultural gem. The farm provides fruits & veggies to area food pantries, soup kitchens, and homeless shelters; educational workshops for children and adults; and a "Pick-Your-Own" program for families to harvest their own organic produce.
