  • Boy Scout Troop 183 is celebrating its anniversary this weekend.

        The troop started in 1957 and was originally sponsored by St. John’s Episcopal Church. Harold Wilkes was the first scout master and the Rev. G. William Beale was rector of St. John’s at the time. The troop became associated with Bedford Presbyterian Church in the 1980s and both churches jointly sponsor it. They meet in a facility owned by Bedford Presbyterian on Center Street. It is the oldest continuing troop in the Bedford area.

  • Gross’ Orchard now features an artists’ village.

        It’s just down the road from the orchard’s sales area and signs point you to it. Ronnie Gross, who along with his father, Walter Gross, run the orchard said that they started construction in June. It consists of some small buildings providing sheltered spaces for local artists to display and sell their work. There is also space where tents can be set up.
        It’s called “Artists’ Village by the Stream.”

  • Pete Jensen, a Bedford resident, just returned from what might be termed a victory lap.

        Jensen is a Navy veteran from World War II. He served aboard an LCS (L). Termed “Mighty Midgets,” they were the craft that everybody wished they’d had at D-Day.  Based on the LCS hull, a type of large landing craft, these craft could accompany landing craft right to the shore during an amphibious assault.
