It May Not Have Been Bedford Day, but the Town Campus was Busy on a Gorgeous September Saturday

 Editor’s Note: While Bedford Day is typically celebrated on the third Saturday of September, the 2020 date was changed to September 26 to avoid conflict with Rosh Hashana which began at dusk on September  18 and ended on September 19.

It wasn’t Bedford Day, but there was a lot happening at the Town Campus on a beautiful Saturday, that in an ordinary non-pandemic year would have been a town-wide celebration.

The Bedford Police and the Rotary Club collaborated in a free bike helmet promotion to support students riding to school rather than taking the bus this year. Shortly before the end of the promotion, more than 40 helmets had been sent home with euphoric riders.

Tutor Lori Eggert visited the Little Free Library kiosk to collect books to share with her students. “My mission is to introduce my students to new genres, new illustrators, new storylines, etc. It’s been a challenge since the library has been closed, so these little kiosks are a godsend.” Click this link to see the dedication of this particular Little Free Library, a Silver Award project for the Girl Scouts of Troop 71627 in 2017.

All this and a picnic (‘The Senior Center may be closed, but we’re not,” quipped one participant) and registration for Gator volleyball.
