Kayla Thelwell, who just turned 12 and lives in the Bronx, spent two weeks in Bedford courtesy of the Fresh Air Fund.
The Fresh Air Fund allows children from low income communities in New York City to have country and small town experiences every summer.
This is the third summer that Mike and Katy Shea, of Bedford, have hosted Kayla. She’s a very welcome house guest. The Sheas three children are grown and Katy notes that it’s nice to have a child around the house.
