Historical Society a success thanks to our community

To the Editor:

Thank you to the Bedford community for your support of two recent fundraisers hosted by the Bedford Historical Society. Our live auction in September was a huge success! Proceeds will benefit the ongoing operations of the Bedford Historical Society and the development of the Bedford Community Center. We are so grateful to Keith Bellew and his staff at Royal Bellew Auctions for running this auction. And thanks to the Bedford community for your donated items and participation in the auction.

The second fundraiser was our October Clothing Drive. It not only helped provide support services for people with epilepsy all over New England, but it raised money for the Bedford Community Center as we recycled 3,819 pounds of clothing! Your donations of used clothing helped bring us closer to our goal of opening a community center that will serve the entire community. We are planning on holding another Clothing Drive in spring 2017 so keep us in mind when you start sorting through your out-grown, out-dated or just plain worn-out clothing.

Thank you again for supporting this important project. To learn more about the Stevens-Buswell Community Center, please visit www.bedfordhistoricalnh.org.
