Paul Baughman Benefit

On Easter morning 2013, Paul had climbed a ladder to change the scarf to white on the cross outside of New Bethel UM Church and fell. He seriously injured his shoulder and needed surgery and physical therapy following the accident.  Because Paul is a self-employed he did not qualify for unemployment. He quickly fell behind on his financial obligations. His church sponsored a fundraiser, held today, to help him and his wife, Hope, with their financial situation.

Paul has regained most of the movement in his shoulder and is slowly getting back to work. God bless him and all those who came out today to stand and support their brother in Christ.

The benefit was held at the Warrington Township Municipal Park in Rossville, PA.

Special guest performances was provided by The Dietrich Brothers, Walt Crider and the Old Time Way, and Donna Jean Foster.

Vegetable soup, chicken corn soup, chili, hot dogs and a never ending array of deserts were sold all day.

Also held were 50/50 raffles and several auctions of donated items.

If you would like to help Paul & Hope in this time of need, donations may be mailed to New Bethel UM Church, 1485 Kunkle’s Mill Road. Lewisberry, PA 17339. A letter of acknowledgement will be sent for your donation.
