History Welcome Reception Has Large Turnout

Sep 9, 2013

There was a large turnout for the history department’s annual welcome reception at the home of Dr. Stephen Carls on September 9, 2013. Some 35 people participated in the event, including faculty, faculty spouses, and students. All enjoyed good food, splendid conversation, and beautiful weather. Among the food choices were several home-prepared items: brownies, lemon bars, chocolate fudge, blueberry muffins, roast pork cold cuts, and an eggplant-based chip dip. There were also fresh fruits, mixed nuts, chips, crackers, and a plate of assorted cheeses. A specially prepared fruit punch topped off the menu list.
