The seventh annual Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving was a huge succes, thanks to over 275 runners and walkers and the hard work of Rich Hamilton and other organizers. The record number of participants raised a record $5,615 for the Bedford Food Pantry. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year, and we depend on and are grateful for the support. If you want to relive the glory, or see what you missed, Rich has posted these photos and a video.Thank you, thank you to Rich and everyone else who made this such an outstanding event!
The Thanksgiving pantry will be held Monday, November 25, from 3:00-6:00. Anyone who is a pantry member and has a yellow card by Thursday, November 14 may reserve a frozen turkey and all the other ingredients for a turkey dinner. From 5:30-6:00 we will distribute any extras to people who were not pantry members by 11/14, or who didn't make a reservation.
The pantry will be open normal hours on November 21, and closed on Thanksgiving, November 28.
