The festive Christmas decorations were shut down at Bedford's National Elks Home not long ago.
But that doesn't mean the celebrating stopped.
In fact, the place was in full roar last Friday evening. That's when Liberty High School's first-ever Hall of Fame class was inducted.
At a banquet hosted at the Elks Home, the class numbering 13 members was feted. On Saturday, the members received their commemorative medallions between basketball games featuring the Liberty and Staunton River varsity squads.
