Bedford Volunteers Support Our Snow Plow Drivers During Blizzard 2013
Submitted by Rich Daugherty
Gail Black-Smith and Art Smith organized Friday night supper and Saturday morning breakfast for Bedford’s snow plowers. The meals were prepared at the Town Center kitchen and served in the Fitch Room. There was sufficient parking for big and little snow plows, big and little tractors and sufficient food for 30 snow movers.
Friday’s evening meal was served from 7-9 and Saturday morning breakfast was served at 6 am. Gail Black-Smith donated a huge pot of her best chili for the Friday meal. Along with the chili, the men had sausage soup made and donated by Teresa from the new-in-town Cafe Keresa located at 119 Great Road. Starbucks provided the coffee for both meals, and Chip In Farm donated the eggs for breakfast. Art and Rich donated all the other makings for toasted ham and cheese sandwiches, expertly prepared by Gail using the Town Center ovens, and all the fixings for a big breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausages, and biscuits and gravy.
Several pictures of the Friday evening meal follow. Rich Warrington was there for most of the meal sharing weather forecasts and storm timing information.
Hot food in the middle of a blizzard on a cold New England night seems to be an excellent way for citizens to show appreciation for the work these guys do. They all indicated they’d be back at 6am Saturday morning to chomp down for breakfast.
