Gun Bash sponsors sought

The Village of Bethesda Fire Department and The Bethesda Park District will be having the second annual Gun Bash Fundraiser on Nov. 2 at the James Carnes Center. The goal of this fundraiser is to help raise money for a new ladder truck for the fire department. Sponsorship can be monetary or in the form of an item donation to be auctioned off at the event.

Those tiers are as follows:

$50-249 - Silver Sponsorship – You will be advertised in the flier, which will be passed out at the gun bash, as a sponsor of our event.

$250-$499 Gold Sponsorship – You will receive silver perks and have your logo put on sponsor sign that we will have on display at the event and Silver perks. You also receive two free meal tickets for the bash.

$500-and Up Platinum Sponsorship- You will receive Silver and Gold perks as well as have your name announced at the Bash as a sponsor of the event and you will receive two free meal tickets for the gun bash for every $250 you sponsor!

Gun sponsor: Anyone who sponsors $250 or more towards a gun will receive one gun sponsor raffle ticket and two meal tickets for the gun bash, for every $250 they sponsor. The Gun Sponsor Raffle will be for a Henry Golden Boy 22 Magnum. You will also receive all of the perks base on the tier above, as well as have your businesses name verbally advertised at the bash as the sponsor of the gun. For those who do not wish to fully sponsor the cost of a gun, we also have guns that can be co-sponsored. We are asking for a donation of $250 to co-sponsor a gun. If you would like to sponsor one of the guns you can talk to Dirk Davis or Rick Burkhead for details on how much each of the guns cost so that you can select which gun you would like to sponsor.

Belmont County Rubberneck Tour set

The 2019 Belmont County Rubberneck Tour is set for Sunday, Oct. 13 from Noon to 6 p.m.

It started at a group meeting when someone said that a "do-it-yourself" scenic drive would be a great way to promote agriculture in the area.

A gentleman at the meeting said, "Folks like to drive and rubberneck at the scenery."

First starting as a tour of the local farms and homesteads, the Rubberneck Tour changes each year, also including historical landmarks and scenic byways with stops along the way. The tour will take place from 12-6 p.m. on SR 149 through Flushing with stops along the way on this free tour with food and many activities throughout.
