Students at Bethel College traded their textbooks for tools on Tuesday, October 3rd as students, faculty and staff offered their services during Bethel's annual Work Day. WFRN was just one of the places that the Bethel students visited. This year the Bethel team took care of cleaning jobs inside and outside of our building.
