A Message from Supervisor Chris Burdick for Veterans Day
“This coming Tuesday, November 11, let us remember and honor those who have served our country in uniform. For those who served, those who still are serving and those who honor them, this is a time to reflect on the millions of men and women of the United States Armed Forces who put their duty to country ahead of their own safety and lives. Whether or not this Nation is at war or in a state of readiness, as it always must be, we are profoundly grateful for the courage and selflessness of the veterans who have served our Nation and protected our freedoms.
I ask all citizens of Bedford to join me this Veterans Day in honoring our veterans and those on active and reserve duty, together with their families.”
Town offices will be closed Veterans Day, November 11
Following this work session, the Town Board may take action on the recommendations at its regular November 18 meeting.
Next COC Meeting on Thursday, November 13 (please note date change) at 7:30pm at the Bedford Hills Community Center
A message from David Gabrielson, Chair: ” I hope you can join us at the COC meeting on the 13th to meet John Farr (for those of you who might not know him already!) and hear about the effort he’s leading to turn the Bedford Playhouse into a not-for-profit arts house along the lines of the Jacob Burns in Pleasantville and the Avon in Stamford (which John co-founded a decade ago). As you may know, the current tenant, Bowtie Cinemas, is not renewing their lease at year’s end. A change like this will definitely require a lot of support, so please, come and hear about this extraordinary opportunity.”

The Town of Bedford encourages residents to mulch their fall leaves to make use of leaves on their own properties. Mulched leaves benefit lawns and garden beds and when leaves are mulched the town can save money with fewer leaves to collect. Please tell your landscaper about the many advantages of leaf mulching. For more information click here and send this video to your landscaper to show him how professional landscapers mulch leaves on residential properties and why they like it so much.
