The Bethany Historical Society is sponsoring two benefits for this cause. The first will be the 11th annual Music Mix on the Green on Wednesday, Aug. 14 at 7 p.m. If it rains, it will be held in the Bethany United Methodist Church Hall.
The Uphill String Band will be performing. Come, bring a chair, have some punch and cookies and enjoy old time fiddle tunes, bluegrass and country music.
The second benefit will be held Saturday, Aug. 31 in the historic park and will be a Flea Market from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. If you would like to be a vendor, call 251-9731. Come and enjoy a day in the park.
Ruth Baristow, Vice President of Bethany Borough Council and treasurer of the Bethany Historical Society, is charing the fund drive.
