The scholarships were announced and awarded at the BHS Vocal and Instrumental Concerts on May 16 and 22, respectively. Each concert was followed by a dessert reception sponsored by POMS, to honor the scholarship winners and graduating seniors.

How did Boston silversmith and bell-maker Paul Revere end up riding to alert the countryside in April, 1775 that “the British are coming?”
It makes sense that he rode to give this alert, since he was an express rider for the Boston Committee of Correspondence and the MA Committee of Safety in 1774 and 1775, and carried news, messages, and copies of important documents from Boston as far away as New York and Philadelphia. These facts and others will be presented by the Bedford Historical Society’s guest speaker, Frank Rigg, following the Society’s Potluck Supper and Annual Meeting on Sunday, May 19, 2019 in Upper Fellowship Hall of the First Church of Christ, Congregational, 25 The Great Rd., Bedford.

In the creative process, a writer bares emotions. Writers are also often insecure.
So, when a burgeoning writer, such as Bedford High junior Jackie Altman, submits a play for the school’s third annual Playwright’s Festival, it is accompanied by more than a little trepidation. There is, in the end, reward.
