Moretz Mills - 74 8th St SE, Hickory, NC

Lenoir-Rhyne University Bears Club will host its annual dinner Tuesday, Aug. 7, at Moretz Mills in Hickory. The event will feature three accomplished coaches all with unique ties to the University - Rick Barnes '77, Mike Houston, and Ryan Odom - who are driving forces in the collegiate coaching ranks.

The annual dinner, which will also celebrate the life and legacy of former director of intercollegiate athletics and executive director of the Bears Club Neill McGeachy, will commence at 6 p.m. with a cash bar and buffet dinner. The program format will be unique and different from past years in that it will include all three legendary speakers participating in a fireside chat moderated by McGeachy's children - Ashley Fox and Rod McGeachy.
