The next Friends of the MLA program, on Saturday, Feb. 22, will look back at the impact of the 1960s on the college and the larger Newton community.

Keith L. Sprunger, Bethel professor emeritus of history, will facilitate the program “Remembering Bethel in the Sixties: A Turning Point?,” Feb. 22 from 2-3:30 p.m. in the college’s Mantz Library lounge (ground floor).

The ’60s turned out to be a time of great changes in American life – a decade some have even called “the 20th-century turning point.”
