A Great Weekend of Activities
A weekend full of events brought a lot of visitors to the Bedford community. Town-wide yard sales kicked off the weekend with sales starting on Friday. Saturday morning there were sidewalk sales downtown and the Red Brick Run had over 90 entries. Activities in the courtyard included: bouncy houses, bubble machine, face painting, a visit from a clown, and kids’ painting class with Joe Jordan. The first Farmers’ Market was held Saturday afternoon from 4-7 p.m. at Bibbins Park and will continue each Saturday through the summer months. The weekend ended with graduation ceremonies at Bedford Community School on Sunday. Palen Stream was named valedictorian and Rachel Armstrong was named salutatorian for the Class of 2016.
