Thanks for Operation Care for Troops aid

On Saturday, Oct. 31, local Bedford companies SAFRAN Vectronix Inc. and SAFRAN Optics 1, located at 2 Cooper Lane, sponsored their annual community drive in conjunction with "Operation Care for Troops" to collect donations to be included in packages that will be sent to troops worldwide for the holiday season. Thanks to the support from the Bedford and surrounding communities, many donations – essentials, food, well wishes, money, etc. – were received filling up a large pickup truck and a small SUV.

We again thank the Bedford and surrounding communities for your generous support in showing our appreciation to the men and women serving our country. Thanks to your kindness, these donations will help brighten their holidays away from home.
