The Museum Committee is always looking for memorabilia of any kind relating to Emmaus.  Let us know what you have.  Even if it's not an artifact, we might be able to use it to decorate. As we say, "One person's junk, is a historical society's treasure."

Did you ever have a dream ?  Of course yo u did. We all did. But this one's different. It's not about getting rich or building  an empire. Sure it's fun to think about what you would do wi th all the mo ney in the world, but that's not what this dream is about.  This dream is about so much more than that.  It's about giving back.  It's about making our community just a little bit better.  It's about extending a hand up to those in need.  It's about doing the right thing, even when it's not easy.  Here at L2G we are about 3 very simple things, family, community, and good food. 
 
L2G is our way of taking Chef RoJo's passion for cooking and turning it into something just a little bit more.  Each time you visit you will be treated to some of the best food in the Lehigh Valley. Gourmet soups, salads, and sandwiches prepared fresh daily for your enjoyment.  Our menu changes regularly and is based on what is fresh and in season.  As much as possible, our ingredients are farm fresh and locally sourced.  By doing so we are able to offer you a better product while also supporting other local businesses.
