This weekend Offender Victim Ministries will host "Just Desserts," a summer fundraiser for the organization. 


Three highlights

1. Dessert

The evening will feature energy balls, watermelon, ice tea, cookies and whoopie pies with Salted Creamery on hand with ice cream.


2. Music

The Flannelbacks, a bluegrass and folk band formed at Bethel College in the fall of 2014, will perform.

The group has found enjoyment and success in recreating favorite tunes and performing original songs. With a mix of guitar, banjo, mandolin, upright bass, harmonica, dobro and harmony voice, the Flannelbacks appeal to old and young alike.
