SHAMOKIN — From his efforts to feed students during the coronavirus pandemic to making the best homemade ice cream in the area, Ken Bethge has successfully continued the legacy of Maurer’s Dairy.

Bethge bought Maurer’s Dairy in Tharptown in 1993 before moving it to 34 S. Market St., Shamokin, in October 1996. He has expanded to include a parking lot where patrons can park their vehicles without worry of plugging the meters.
