Bethany Bowl- December 4, 2012  Fed: 99  Head Cook: Phyllis Rowell  DISHWASHERS: Conrad Rowell and Gary Rogers  HELPERS: Darlene Colby, Pat Seivwright, Chris Terry, Anne DeVaughn, and Pete Gomez.  The menu was Manhattan clam chowder from NECI, tomato soup from Campbells, green beans with diced tomatoes, bread crumbs and cheese toppping, egg salad sandwiches, tuna salad sandwiches, fruit cup, assorted desserts and beverages. We would welcome any holiday desserts such as bars, brownies or cookies. Thanks in advance!

The Property Board- would like to thank all those who either paid their pledges early or made a special contribution to the pre-buy oil fund. Because of this our cash flow was such that we could lock in at $3.45 a gallon and save approximately $2000.00 on the cost of heating oil for the 2012-2013 heating season.
