Hi Coopers and Snyders - I know preservation is important to you - if you could come to this meeting and bring 10 of your closest friends (especially if they live in Bethel) that would be great!Talk to you soonBethI know everyone is busy at this time of year but time is very short. If we don't show the township that there is public concern they will quickly completely demolish this historic building.Our desire is to save more than just a sign that says here stood the blacksmith shop. We need you to come to the meeting this Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. December 12th at the John L. Myers Township Building.Thank you!Beth McCarrickVice ChairBethel Township Preservation SocietySubject: Historic Blacksmith Shop in Danger of Demolition
