Bethel Healthy
Community Steering Group


The Bethel Healthy Community Task Force is a partnership between the Town of Bethel and the community that was established to encourage health and wellness in the Town through access to healthy food, opportunities for physical activity and a sense of purpose.

The work of the Bethel Healthy Community Task Force is guided by input from the community; all are invited to be part of improving overall community health. Specific initiatives are currently underway and there is always room for new ideas. Meetings are held the third Thursday of each month at 6pm at the Duggan Community Center in White Lake. 

The Bethel Healthy Community Task Force hopes to inspire community spirit and build connections with other town volunteer organizations such as the Bethel Business Association, Bethel Council of the Arts, Bethel First, Bethel Green Committee, the Bethel Lions Club and community events such as Community Pride Day, the Kauneonga Lake Farmers’ Market and the Kauneonga Block Party.  Each of these organizations, efforts and activities contribute individually and collectively to the overall community health and wellbeing for the Town of Bethel and our residents.
