Bethel Relay for Life

On Saturday, June 5, 2013, the Newtown High School National Honor Society participated in the annual Bethel Relay for Life held at Bethel High School. The National Honor Society participated in the “Newtown” lap that was held at 5:00pm. The Honor Society spent the evening selling baked goods to further support their donation of over $1100 to the American Cancer Society. Although the evening was long, chilly, and wet from the dew, everyone agreed that it was a very worthy cause. A special thank you to team Captain Nick Shannon and Melissa Buccino for their hard work in coordinating the evening.
