With Meet LGMSD, we take you behind the scenes to introduce you to the folks who make us who we are—the Board, the Committees, the volunteers, and the staff. Each week, we will introduce you to one of the many individuals who contribute so much to La Grande Main Street, ultimately making La Grande a vibrant, stable, and beautiful place to gather, shop, eat, work, live, and play.
This week we continue our introductions with Bethany Barker, co-chair of the Crazy Days Committee. She has also helped out on the Design Committee and the Promotions Committee in the past.
Bethany was born in El Salvador and was adopted when she was two years old. She grew up in Summerville and moved to La Grande when she was nine. After graduating from high school, Bethany traveled around, gathering new experiences. She moved back to La Grande ten years ago and started a housekeeping business.
Bethany decided she wanted to become more involved in her community and, lucky for LGMSD, she chose us! The thing she likes most about her involvement is seeing other people become as excited as she is about new changes in La Grande.
Bethany has a two-year-old son, Solomon. She has always been interested in traveling to new places and is looking forward to sharing this with her son. Her most avid hobby is photography. She and Solomon are also pet parents to a little dog, Otis.
