Are We There Yet?

When cranky kids in the backseat start asking, “Are we there yet?” any parent knows that happy anticipation is about to give way to the complete breakdown of familial order.  We respond with the one word we fervently hope will keep things calm: “Almost!”, delivered with a happy lilt that belies our own impatience.

For those of you asking “are we there yet?” with respect to the end-of-year fundraising effort The Bedford Citizen is now embarked on, we are pleased to announce (with the obligatory happy lilt in our voices) that we are there… ”Almost!”  As of this week, and with sincere thanks to all of you who have already donated, we are just shy of meeting our goal of $27,500 which will be matched by NewsMatch, a generous Bedford donor, Suzanne and Company, and Instrumentation Laboratories dollar for dollar.  Won’t you please help us get the rest of the way by December 31?

Maybe you’ve been busy with holiday chores and just haven’t gotten around to sending us a check or pledging online through our website,  – we understand!  Fortunately, there’s still time left to make your donation before the end of the year while doubling your impact to keep The Bedford Citizen coming and better than ever.  Breaking news, coverage of key town boards and committees, local events, Covid-19 updates, preparation for Town Meeting, election information, important alerts and notifications, and a town calendar marking dates and places you need to know about to participate in this lively community – these are just a few of the things we bring you multiple times a week, free and online.

We can’t do it without you…can you do without us?  Please make a donation now to help us get from “Almost!” to “We’re here!”  You can use the DONATE button below or send a check to The Bedford Citizen, PO Box 212, Bedford, MA 01730.  Thank you!
