Bethel Schools Groundbreaking

On Thursday, the student body of Bethel Local Schools gathered in the gravel lot beside the high school to break ground on the new addition. “Let the construction begin!” Superintendent Ginny Potter declared. After the dirt was ceremonially shoveled, students lined up to mark the border of the new addition.  Students of all ages participated in the ceremony, which was held during school hours so that they could be involved.  The $22M project includes major site improvements and high school addition.

Honu House opens

The Honu House celebrated its opening this weekend.  Honu is a hawaiian term for green sea turtle, and served as the parti for the design.  Resting on a gentle slope, the Honu House offers panoramic views of Harmony Farms and a tree lined pond below. The opening of this retirement home marks a long term relationship with the Brewers, dating back to the 1950's when John Ruetschle worked on the original Brewer home. Over the last 60 years Ruetschle Architects have completed four buildings at Harmony Farms in Tipp City Ohio.
