Earlier this month, as they have for many years, members of the Bedford American Legion Auxiliary served a barbeque lunch to over 150 Veterans at the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital in Bedford. Former Bedford resident Andy King and his championship team, the Bastey Boys, fired up their smokers and grills to prepare the barbeque.

The American Legion is a not-for-profit organization.  The Bedford American Legion Family provides activities for the veterans at the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veteran’s Hospital on Springs Road in Bedford such as bingo, barbecue lunches, and Mexican-themed lunches held off-site at the Legion.  Events are held for Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, POW/MIA, Veteran’s Day, as well as a Mother’s Day Breakfast, Thanksgiving Dinner for Seniors, and Children’s Christmas Party with Santa. The Bedford Legion also actively charters Boy Scout and Cub Scout troops and provides scholarships to local high school students.  These programs are made possible through community support and Legion members who volunteer their time and effort
