The Murder Mystery Theater Production, performed by a troupe of talented players, will follow the cocktail hour with a full dinner buffet served at intermission, organizers said.

Beth-El Center runs a shelter with 34 beds for men, women, and women with children who find themselves homeless due to a number of reasons, ranging from financial and emotional problems to substance abuse. Persons may stay in the shelter for up to 90 days while receiving support and assistance from trained case managers who help the residents return to a normal level of independence. Beth-El Center is the only shelter in the region that houses families with children. In addition, Beth-El Soup Kitchen serves a hot, nutritious noon meal to an average of 60 persons a day, 5 days a week. Several churches and community groups provide meals on week-ends.
