At our Club's Wednesday, March 14th regular meeting, BAVTS Culinary Arts Instructor Larry Fortunato proudly presented his four students from the Bethlehem Area Vocational-Technical School’s Culinary Arts Program who wowed judges at the 4th Annual Girl Scout Cookie Crunch, taking home top honors at the culinary event held Feb. 25 at the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks’ Musikfest Café in Bethlehem. The students faced off against some of the Lehigh Valley’s most creative restaurant chefs, ultimately earning the title of “Cookie Crunch Champions” thanks to their Lemonades® Pepper Chicken Bites with Mango Salsa.  Congratulations to all.  Bethlehem Rotary is proud of its long-time support for student achievement at BAVTS.

On Saturday, March 10th, Area 2 Rotary Clubs (Bethlehem, Bethlehem Morning Star, Nazareth, Saucon Valley & Easton) gathered in Moravian College's Haupert Union Building to package 40,000 meals for families in need.  This was double the number of meal packets we packed and shared with local food pantries last year thanks to a district grant received to match Area 2 Clubs' donations toward this effort.   Thanks to the organizers and volunteers.  It was a great day!
