BETHEL — The Bethel Historical Society’s Business Partner’s program for 2013 is now underway, with letters highlighting the benefits of membership in BHS having been mailed to some 60 area businesses.

As one of the leading cultural institutions of its type in northern New England, the society realizes that this ranking is due in large part to the support received from the business community in the Bethel area and beyond. In turn, the society strives to promote its Business Partners in a variety of ways, knowing that this suc­cessful partnership contributes directly to the economic vitality of the region.

Each year, thousands of people visit the society’s Museum of Regional History, which features more than a dozen exhibit spaces and period rooms. In addition, the society offers a regular schedule of lectures, courses, craft demonstra­tions and educational activities designed to make the area’s history meaningful, accessible and enjoyable for people of all ages.

Thanks to the financial support of its Business Partners, the society is able to carry out its mission of collect­ing, preserving, displaying and interpreting the history of western Maine and the White Mountain region of Maine and New Hampshire.

In return for the financial support of its Business Partners, the Bethel Historical Society provides a broad range of member benefits: an attractive Business Partner certificate to display; referral of member businesses to BHS visitors, staff, volunteers and trustees; Business Partners’ literature prominently displayed at the society’s Robinson House, which is open year-round; Business Partner listings and links on the BHS website; subscriptions to The Broad Street Herald newsletter, The Courier history journal and the society’s e-news; listings in each issue of the society’s newsletter; plus several others.
