During its winter retreat, the Bethany College Board of Directors focused on continued strategic planning for the bright future of the college. The two-day retreat was divided into four conversations and occurred at two locations. The first day was held at Office This in southeast Wichita, the site of Bethany’s partnership with MindFire Academy. The second day was held at the McPherson Country Club.
UPDATE: Events will take place in Lindquist Hall due to weather. Bethany College celebrates Earth Day on April 22 with workshops and Chapel service, and a work day all in the Community Garden at 725 N. Kansas Street in Lindsborg, Kan. All events are open to the public. The Community Garden was first planted on May 3, 2009, to tie the college and community together. Through the processes of fellowship and shared work, participants learn about growing local food and living sustainably. The garden is dedicated to Ken Branch, a Lindsborg resident and 1959 Bethany graduate who has taught anthropology at Bethany. In the past three years, the garden has produced vegetables, fruit, herbs, and flowers.

To bring Anton Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard to life for his audiences, director Cody Whetstone made the decision to set the play in modern times. “The play was written and set in Russia in the early 1900’s,” said Whetstone. “To show how universal Chekhov’s ideas and words are, we’re setting it in modern times. I hope it will help Chekhov’s play resonate with today’s audiences.”
