Home is the ultimate value that all North Carolinians venerate. It is here that we were born, were raised, laughed and cried, made our friends, married, had our children and will ultimately die. Home is in our blood, it’s what we care for, it’s in our old houses, our churches, our towns; it is our sense of place. And so it is that a Bethel women’s group should be called “Hometown Bethel.” Small North Carolina towns are always filled with groups of energetic women, whether it is their Church Circle, Book Club or Bridge Club. Ever since the Bethel Round Dozen Club began in 1911, Bethel has had all of them and more. But none can compare to “Hometown Bethel.”
It all began Dec. 28, 2001. The name “Hometown Bethel” and mission statement were adopted. The group “exists to create and promote the village concept of a better Bethel—A new Bethel does not have to be created, so much as remembered! As a nonprofit, grassroots revitalization organization, we are committed to creating a healthy, safe, friendly and beautiful community reflecting our rich heritage and spreading the word that “Bethel is a nice place to live.”
HomeTown Bethel members care about their community. Several of our members work with other committees to make Bethel a better place through their work on the Bethel Unity Festival, the Christmas Parade and with the Senior Citizens.
Bethel Union School will celebrate 100 years since their founding on August 31. There will also be a parade that morning starting at 10 in Bethel. The parade route will be posted closer to the parade date. Any inquiries about parade entrants please contact Gloristine Brown or Mary Sue Gooch for further information.
