We are looking for families and individuals to adopt a corner of Bethany’s grounds and help bring it back to life. It can be as simple as keeping a bed of bushes trimmed through the growing season, or planting annual flowers to put some color back into the system. This is for everyone, young and old, as well as a great family activity. Contact Laura Romig at 303-758-2820 or [email protected] for details.
