Fall Fest will include worship service to inaugurate president
Bethel College will inaugurate Dr. Perry D. White as its 14th president in a service of worship at 10 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 10, during the 40th annual Fall Festival weekend. The worship and inauguration event will take place in Jolliffe Auditorium in Memorial Hall. White began at the college July 19.
The extended Fall Fest weekend will also include times for Perry and Dalene White to meet the public. On Thursday, Oct. 7, at Taste of Newton downtown, the couple will be at a Bethel College booth at Broadway and Main from 6-9 p.m. On Saturday, Oct. 9, during the Fall Fest fair on campus, they will be available on Centennial Plaza in front of Memorial Hall from 1:30-3 p.m. (Cafeteria in Schultz Student Center if rain).
Alumni, friends of the college, the broader community and representatives from other colleges and universities are invited not only to the service of worship and inauguration but to any or all Fall Fest activities.
