Noreen Drive may be one of Bedford’s ‘far-flung’ neighborhoods, but what it lacks in proximity to the center of town, it makes up in warmth and spirit.

Long known for summertime end-of-the-driveway gatherings, the first snow of 2020 brought the neighbors together early Saturday evening.

Christine Rabinowitz, one of the organizers, said, “Success! Everything seemed perfect!”

Learning that the sale of luminaries at Chip-in Farm would be a win-win—great illumination along the roadside and funds to support the Bedford Minuteman Company’s educational foundation—was part of the impetus.

“The cold still night, the crescent moon, the kids giggling and romping in the snow,
the adult conversation, the treats, the hot chocolate, mulled wine,
and maple beer. We all wore masks, talked incessantly, and strolled to
Christmas music by Jana and the Chieftains.

“Everyone looks forward to a new neighborhood tradition.”
