Benefit for Beshey set for Friday

“Mugs for Meg” will be held Friday from noon to 7 p.m. at Buckroyd Studio,

The event is a benefit for Fort Dodge teacher Meg Beshey, who was recently diagnosed with Melanoma Stage III cancer, and has been undergoing treatment. Beshey has been told by her doctors that due to her failing health, she can’t return to the classroom this fall.

Photographer Maureen Powers will take portraits that will be available for a free-will donation.
