Mud Club raises money for the Angel Network

Visitors to Emmaus High School March 17 were greeted by the aroma of soups, creating a smell similar to that of Sunday supper at grandma’s house.

The event was the eighth annual Mud Club Empty Bowls fundraiser, benefiting the food program for the Angel Network in the East Penn School District.

Attendees were invited to peruse dozens of glazed bowls created by the school’s Mud Club under the guidance of advisor Lisa Caruso.

The bowls were $20 each. In addition to the glazed bowls, this year the students crafted mugs which were $5.
