Bethel prepares for holiday celebration

The Village of Bethel is gearing up for the Down Home Christmas and council members expressed their thoughts about the upcoming event at the meeting on Monday, Nov. 23.

“It looks like Bethel is getting in the holiday spirit with the Christmas lights going up,” said Mayor John Swarthout. “Every year I have people tell me how nice the village looks when they drive through.”

Village Administrator Travis Dotson told council that all the lights were expected to be in place in time for the Down Home Christmas, scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 5.
