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.

Miles Zakos

Q. In what grade are you currently enrolled?

A. I’m a senior at Emmaus High School.

Q. What is your favorite subject? Why?

A. My favorite subject has to be physics. It feels like a very pure science, where you ask a question about the universe, and then you just go out there and test it. It’s also really broad in that you can study physics and want to learn how to make buildings or what happens when you jump in a black hole. It’s fascinating from the big to the small. Also Mr. Ohl is a fantastic teacher, passionate and intelligent.
