Andersons Gear Up for Annual Scotty Fund Town Picnic

The SCOTTY Fund Bethel Town Picnic will be held on Saturday September 8th from 11am – 6pm on the Bethel Municipal Center front lawn.  The SCOTTY Fund, Inc. was established in memory of  Scott Anderson. Scotty was a three-year-old who
lost his life to cancer. Through his strength and smile he taught many people about courage, positive thinking, unconditional love and giving, and was instrumental in the growth of a tremendous spirit of unity and support by the entire
Bethel, CT Community. This is the legacy The SCOTTY Fund will continue for other children in need. Each year the Anderson family, along with dozens of volunteers, holds the annual picnic to raise funds for families with a loved one battling cancer.

Admission to the annual town picnic fundraising event is $7.00 which includes all amusements, games, pony rides, rides, contests and entertainment. Food, drinks and a bake sale are also available.
