On May 30, The Bedford Safe Routes to School program was honored at the annual Safe Routes to School Ceremony held at the Massachusetts State House.  All three partner schools:  Lt. Eleazer Davis Elementary, Lt. Job Lane Elementary, and John Glenn Middle School were recognized as Gold Level partners.  Also, Lane School received an Honorable Mention for Exemplary Program in the Northeast Region.

Accepting the award for Bedford were Bicycle Advisory Committee Chair Mark Bailey, Youth and Family Services Director Sue Baldauf, Healthy Communities Coordinator Carla Olson, and Board of Health Director Heidi Porter.

A successful ‘Bike Rodeo’ was held at Lane School during May, known this year as Active Transportation Month. The rodeo was supported the Bedford DPW and Healthy Bedford who arranged for the donation and preparation of several bicycles so that everyone could participate.

The DPW helped to prepare the donated bicycles
