NORTH NEWTON, KAN. – Alumni and friends of Bethel College now have a new opportunity to contribute volunteer time and energy to improving the campus for both students and visitors.

Dalene White, spouse of Bethel President Perry D. White and Bethel’s chief volunteer, has organized a Volunteer Service Corps, “open to anyone interested in volunteering on campus in a variety of ways,” she said.

There will be an informational meeting Wednesday, Feb. 16, at 2 p.m. in Kaufman House, the home of the Kansas Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution (KIPCOR) at 2515 College Avenue in North Newton.

A Bethel alumnus first came up with the idea of organizing volunteers who would work at “enhancing the beauty of the campus.”

The Feb. 16 meeting will include a description of projects planned, including one that Bethel alumni Carol and Ron Peters of North Newton, former owners of Hesston Decorating, have already begun in the Haury Hall student residence.

For more information about the meeting or the Volunteer Service Corps, contact Dalene White.
