The Bedford Education Foundation’s Fall Fundraiser ~ An Update

Best Overall Scarecrow

Before we reach Thanksgiving and start transitioning out of Fall mode, the Bedford Education Foundation would like to thank our community for another successful fundraising event.

The BEF Great Pumpkin and Scarecrow Display Contest was a fun and festive way for residents to decorate the front of their homes in a variety of creative ways while raising much-needed funds for innovative programs at Bedford’s schools.

Congratulations to the 2020 Contest Winners

As always, we couldn’t have done it without your help! Entries ranged from adorable, to hilarious, to very spooky, and the community came out in droves to view and vote on their favorites.
