BY ETHEL DRAYTON-CRAIG, Vice Chargée de Presse THE LEHIGH VALLEY Bailliage—the twelfth oldest bailliage in the United States—celebrated its fiftieth anniversary at the Saucon Valley Country Club in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, on January 28. Bethlehem Steel Corporation president Eugene Grace founded the exquisite club in 1920, with the golf course added soon afterward. Executive Chef Eric Moyer and his team pulled out all the stops for the occasion, including creating a beautiful ice sculpture of the Chaîne medallion. During the reception, attendees were treated to a chamber music performance by Parkland High School students. At this point, "The Goose," arrayed on a silver platter, made an auspicious appearance. Chef Moyer paraded it around the room for all to admire. At the subsequent ceremony, led by Conseiller Culinaire Provincial Thomas Hannum and Bailli John O'Connell, Jr., Vice Conseiller Culinaire Mali Kline and Vice Chargée de Presse Ethel Drayton-Craig were elevated. Tapping the sword on the shoulders is de rigueur and a crowd-pleaser, especially for social-media viewing! Diners then enjoyed Chef Moyer's meticulously prepared meal, paired with unique wines selected by Vice Echanson Donald Squair. Everyone had a grand time, and the Lehigh Valley Bailliage looks forward to celebrating another fifty years together!
