Bucks County: Historic region provides great location for telling stories from the past
Serving traditional American classics like Chicken Pot Pie, Beef Burgundy, steaks and seafood in a colonial-style setting, the Cock ‘n Bull Restaurant was a perfect place for our fourth stop of Falcon Nation Tour. The restaurant, located in the heart of Peddler’s Village in Bucks County, gave attendees the opportunity to browse and shop in surrounding quaint stores and specialty shops. This was the largest event so far on the tour with 24 people in attendance. The spacious private dining room was overflowing with laughter and vibrant conversations. The informal program of the dinner gave space for connecting and reminiscing as alumni swapped stories about their days back at Messiah College. Alumni from the 80s and 90s shared their tales of Gen Ed, “Creeking”, the Wittenberg Door, Homecoming Parades, hiding The Tradition, and Senior Class Trips to Myrtle Beach with recent alums. In return older alumni learned about the new High Center, the Community Garden, White-Out Marches, Duct Tape Wars, and Senior Week which includes a picnic at Orchard Hill. Although times and traditions have changed in Grantham, the common threads, that make Messiah College such a unique and wonderful place and weave one generation to another, remain intact.
