The Bedford Minuteman Company’s Scholarship Trust thanks all those who purchased luminaries this past year.   Special thanks goes to Paul and Neil Couvee and their staff at Chip – In Farm and Suzanne Schmul Koller (Suzanne & Company) both of whom were responsible for over 200 kit sales.

In addition, the Scholarship fund wishes to thank the following:  Chuck Hacala and Richard Manley who worked tirelessly to sell luminaries; Peter Secor, Tim & Karen Brown, Edward Hacala, and Isabel Hacala who helped set up luminaries in the center of town; and Sullivan Tire, Fitzgerald’s Package Store, Fetch It, Corner Antiques, Higgins Group, Nat Brown, Harley Anderson Haynes, Cathy Cordes, Eliza Menninger & Ed Johnson, and Bruce & Dorothy Blake who made generous donations. Finally, thank you to The Bedford Citizen for their help in publicizing the luminary sale.

Once again, thanks to everyone who purchased luminaries this year.
