National Auxiliary Day
A group that has been at the forefront raising funds for the College for decades is the National Bethany Auxiliary. The Auxiliary group meets every fall (the fourth Monday in September) on the Bethany campus. This group consists primarily of women from Evangelical Lutheran Synod congregations. The Auxiliary regularly supports the college with yearly gifts of nearly $15,000. These funds are used for a variety of campus projects ranging from cafeteria improvements, fine arts items, furniture for student lounge areas, and scholarships for students. What sets the group apart from others that support the College is the longevity of the organization. Since their founding as a group in the 1920s the Bethany Auxiliary has supported hundreds of thousands of dollars in projects and improvements on the Bethany campus. We couldn’t be more thankful for the wonderful things that the members of the National Bethany Auxiliary do for Bethany Lutheran College.
Auxiliary Day 2011 takes place on Monday, September 26. All are welcome to attend Auxiliary Day. There will be presentations by faculty members and President Dan Bruss. A special luncheon will be served and a performance by Bethany students will cap off the day. If you are interested in learning more about the Bethany Auxiliary, please call Lance Schwartz, Bethany’s Director of Public Relations at 507-344-7427.
