BEDFORD EXPLAINED: Before our Flag Was the Bedford Flag

By Town Historian Sharon McDonald

Each April, during the Pole Capping and Patriot’s Day parades, you will see the bright crimson Bedford Flag flown.  Even out of season, you will see its image sewn on the uniforms of the women and men of Bedford Police and Fire Departments… hanging in the entry hall of each of the schools… being brought forward at the beginning of Town Meeting… and worn (maybe by you?) as a t-shirt. We’re proud of it. It’s the emblem of Bedford.

Bedford Explained: The Bedford Minuteman Company ~ Pole Capping

By Town Historian Sharon McDonald

Every year, on a Saturday morning in early April, hundreds of Minutemen and women from nearby towns appear on the Bedford Common. At 10:30, fifing and drumming begin. The colonial units, company by company, step off and march down the Great Road, banners waving. With a puff of smoke, muskets now and again fire unexpectedly and onlookers start.

Editor’s Note: Bedford’s 2019 Pole Capping ceremony will begin with a parade to Willson Park, stepping off from Bedford Common at 10:30 am on Saturday, April 6

On the Runway

By Brooke Shamon, Class of 2019, Voices@Bedford High School

Seniors began their final countdown toward graduation with the BHS Fashion Show held on Friday, March 22.  Glitz and glamour from David’s Bridal and Men’s Wearhouse and summer wear from Marshall’s: something for everyone.  All who participated displayed a great balance of confidence and humor.   The BHS fashion show was always something I wanted to be part of.  I was dreaming of the day I could choose a fantasy dress from a bridal salon, pamper myself and walk the stage like I owned it!  Friday night, my dream came true.
