City water project on hold due to weather
By Nicki Lock
Residents in Bedford may have noticed a construction crew working on water lines this fall around town. This water project has now been put on hold for the winter. Drake Construction has been working on replacing about 12,000 feet of new water mains along with 12 new fire hydrants.
Maranatha Volunteers International teams up with The Hope of Survivors
The Hope of Survivors is pleased to announce that Maranatha Volunteers International (www.maranatha.org), a nonprofit organization that provides muchneeded church and school buildings, along with opportunities for people to make a service a part of their daily lives, has chosen The Hope of Survivors Renewal Center as one of their projects.

The Caring Tree that is located in the Taylor County Courtyard has a record number of tags on it this year.
There were 102 children who signed up this year. The Taylor County Neighborhood Center is asking for the
community’s help in filling these tags. Gifts must be turned in to the center by December 13 for family grouping.
Lydia Brumfield, Taylor County Outreach Director, said families will not be called to pick up items until December 23 as the Share Food does not come in until December 21. If you have questions, contact Lydia at (712) 523-3144.
