10th Anniversary Reunion

Please join us for a weekend of reconnection and celebration of our cornerstone community.

When: Friday, September 4th to Sunday September 6th, 2015

Email Lauren (transform@bethlehemfarm.net) by July 15th to let us know you’re coming! (Please also send along the info in the RSVP slip at the bottom of this email.)

Cover your costs for the weekend by clicking here to give a suggested $100/person donation.

Can’t make it to the party? You can still donate online to send an anniversary gift:

Our celebration is guaranteed to include music, an outdoor mass, camaraderie, West Virginia sunsets, merriment, a hike up Bill Mann Hill, evening bonfire, farm food and an opportunity to lend a hand alongside old and new friends (such as washing dishes or harvesting veggies while reminiscing about eventful worksites, memorable homeowners and fun times on the Farm).

Saturday, September 5th is community night: local Farm Friends and our neighbors will be invited for a prayer service, food, and music.

Please RSVP by July 15th. Everyone who responds by July 15th will receive an additional raffle ticket for the drawing (see below) and the best shot at a bed (beds will be assigned first-come, first-served, for the most part). Please help us out with our planning by e-mailing Lauren at transform@bethlehemfarm.net or returning the RSVP slip (see below) to

Bethlehem Farm / P.O. Box 415 / Talcott, WV 24981

We are suggesting a donation of $100 per person to cover costs and support the Farm.
Can’t make it? You can still give an anniversary donation here.
Those who are able to bring a dish to pass or beverages to drink are encouraged to do so.
**************************
We are challenging everyone to a 10th anniversary fundraising contest with prizes, including a quilt piece from Colleen. Prizes will be awarded to most inclusive (the person who gets the most people to donate on their behalf), highest give/get (the person who can raise the highest amount by giving themselves or getting others to give), and by raffle (each $10 raised will earn you one raffle ticket for the drawing)! Feel free to set up a site on gofundme.com, CrowdRise, etc., or just direct people to our donation portal on the webpage. Do you have something to create and contribute as a prize?
Proceeds will go towards 10 more years of awesomeness, including:
***Installing solar hot water in the retreat house***
***Adding enough solar electric panels to go net zero***
***contributing to future local food production through the Churley Memorial Fund***
***purchasing a work truck when our 20-year-old Dodge finally gives up the ghost***
***providing seed money for our low-income home repair 0%-interest micro-loans***
