Firefighter Demo

Tue, 07/07/2015 - 1:36pm -- Miss Luci

On Thursday, July 16th at 10:00am, members of our own heroic Bedford Fire Department will be here to give an interesting and informative demonstration. Afterwards, you will be able to go out to the tanker truck and try squirting the hose! We appreciate our firefighters and what they do to keep us safe from harm.

Critters 'n Creatures

Tue, 07/07/2015 - 1:26pm -- Miss Luci

Would you like to meet some amazing creatures with superpowers? Every time Mona Headen brings us her fun and informative wild animal show, we have to ask her to repeat it...so, there will be 2 presentations, back-to-back, on Tuesday, July 14. The morning show is filling quite rapidly, but there is still plenty of room in the afternoon. There will be a petting session at the end of each presentation, as time allows.

Postponed...
