April 2025

  • April 2nd & 3rd – Science: Planting Seeds
  • April 7th thru 11th – “Free” Bethany Busy Bee Community Swap and Grab from 8:45 – 1:45 pm 

We will be having a “Free” Bethany Busy Bee Community Swap and Grab the week of April 7th through Friday, April 11th from  8:45 – 1:45 pm.

It’s Spring cleaning time and while you are deciphering what to keep and what needs to move on…. keep Bethany Busy Bee’s FREE swap-n-grab in mind. This will be held in the Fellowship Hall. Families may bring their gently used items that they no longer need (clothes, books, toys, pretty much anything- it may be someone else’s treasure). All families (even if you did not bring anything) get to look through all the items brought and see if they can use any of the items and take it home with them for Free! This is a great way to “pass it forward” and help other families enjoy the items that you no longer need.  It’s a win – win for everyone!  All items that remain after April 11th will be sent to ARC, therefore please take as many items as you are able to use for yourself or your family and friends.

Please keep in mind that Monday is the first day that people start bringing their items in, therefore the items may not be completely set up until around 11 am and items may continue to be brought in throughout the week.  Thanks for your patience. We need volunteers to help each day to keep donations organized. Please sign-up to volunteer with this link:  Swap-n-Shop Volunteers

Please let us know if you have any questions!
