Four Seasons of Bounty
To the Editor,
As autumn approaches, and along with it the Bethel Harvestfest & Chowdah Cookoff, we encourage and invite businesses and homeowners to get into the harvest spirit! The 2010 Scarecrow Theme is “Four seasons of Bounty – recreation, local foods & the arts!” Muster up the creative spirit and have fun with this.
The Bethel Area Chamber is busy preparing for a wonderful festival on Sept. 18th that consists of an arts & crafts festival, delicious chowdah & apple pies (anyone can participate and compete!), loaded baked potatoes, the performances of local musicians coordinated by our one and only Jewel Clark, chainsaw carving, horse-drawn wagon rides, local food displays & farmer’s market, fly-fishing demonstrations, historical barn tours & so much more. We hope everyone will plan to stay in town or come to Bethel that day – and invite your friends from afar!
We are recruiting willing helpers to volunteer for the festival and ask that you contact the chamber office as soon as possible at 824-2282 if you have 2 hours to give. Incentives include chowdah and/or a delicious Maine baked potato. Yum!
