The entertainment is lined up, booths planned, food made or ordered, tents up, items donated, sports teams fired up, volunteers recruited -- Fall Fest 2009 is ready to go!
In addition to the programming outlined on the original schedule, alumni and friends of the college may want to be aware of the following:
At Taste of Newton Thursday, Oct. 1, those desiring treats served by Bethel groups will find them at a new location: the corner of Broadway and Main. The Alumni Association will serve verenike, the Student Alumni Association will dish up “dirt cups” (Oreo crumbs, pudding and gummy worms) and the Bethel College Kansas Association of Nursing Students will make fresh funnel cakes. Look for tents with Bethel flags in front of JT’s Java Hut (formerly Moka’s). Munch while listening to Bethel jazz from 6-6:50 p.m. and other entertainment later.
Friday, Oct. 2, the public is invited to view student, faculty and staff creativity at a first-ever Recycle Fest. Using materials such as glass, metal, cardboard, paper and plastic, competitors will create entries in the following four categories: fashion, furniture, invention/household product or the Interim President John Sheriff look-alike. Come to the Ad Building steps at 1 p.m. to see the check-in process followed by judging and a full display at 2 p.m. All entries will also be displayed during Fall Fest.
Saturday, Oct. 3, as part of the 9 a.m. Low German event in Krehbiel Auditorium, Low German radio personality Carl Zacharias, Reinland, Man., will tell of his experiences producing and hosting a Low German radio program. He hosts “Zacharias Vetalt” (“Zacharias Tells”), a weekly half-hour Low German program syndicated to several radio stations in Canada and Paraguay.
Also Saturday, Oct. 3, Campus Ministries invites everyone to a third annual hymn sing 2:30-3:30 p.m. in Room #143 (choral room) of the Fine Arts Center. Lift your voice in praise to God in a venue that’s great for group singing!
