Welcome to 2015! Bob Rotier's students have been at it again! This year's creation represents hotels on the Las Vegas Strip. The Bellagio and Paris Hotels were assembled by Mr. Rotier's physics class at Souhegan High School in Amherst. Sue Downer's chemistry students built the Luxor Hotel. Both teachers are Bedford residents, teaching at Souhegan. The entire exhibit is built with a gingerbread base, then thoroughly embellished with candy, gum and cookies. This has been a tradition for several years now.
