ALEX RADUS ON GODFREY DANIELS

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!
 
 
JOHN PETRUZZELLI & KOLBE ACADEMY
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!
AREA 2 OUTREACH MEDIA COVERAGE!!!
 
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.
