Chair contact

Lin Woodrich


To organize events that inform and entertain Bethel residents. We strive to include all the diverse backgrounds of our community in the events planned. The events committee also tries to participate in other partner events (ie: Beyond Toxics, Friends of Trees).


The committee shall hold monthly meetings with the Beautification Committee, organize events, and otherwise take action to further its core goals, which may include:

  • Recruiting      Bethel residents to attend and/or volunteer to help with events and staffing

  • Expanding     We Are Bethel Celebration is our largest annual event held the second Saturday each year.  Our goal is to keep expanding and adding attendance.

  • Encouraging      Bethel residents to submit ideas for ABC events or partner events regarding      issues of import to the Bethel neighborhood.

  • Assist outside      organizations in outreach during events within the Bethel neighborhood.

  • Other goals      that may be identified by the committee.


Any member of the Active Bethel Community (as defined by our charter) may become a member of the committee either by attending a meeting or by notifying the committee chair of their interest and providing contact information. Members shall retain that status unless a year elapses without their attendance at any meeting, or they explicitly resign their membership. All members of the committee shall be notified of meetings, and included in committee-related email correspondence, unless they specifically opt out.


The committee shall have a Chair appointed by the ABC Board who is responsible for scheduling meetings, communicating with members, and reporting to the Board. The Chair may appoint other officers (e.g. vice-chair or secretary) at their discretion.

Meeting Schedule

Meetings will be held online monthly in combination with the Beautification Committee. The link is In-person strategy meetings to focus on long-term goals and planning may be held quarterly, and will be open to the general public. Reports will be submitted to the ABC Board. As specific initiatives or events are planned, additional meetings will be held as necessary with a goal of keeping as much of the planning as possible online.


The Chair will be responsible for submitting a report to the ABC Board at each monthly meeting. In order of preference, the report should be submitted in person by the Chair, in person by an alternate delegate from the committee, or in writing.


The committee shall be strictly nonpartisan, and as an entity of ABC may take no action that might jeopardize ABC’s 501(c)(4) nonprofit status. Individual members will not be restricted regarding political activity (partisan or otherwise) outside of their work with the committee,
