Welcome to the Rotary Club of Bedford, MA web site.
We invite you to learn more about Rotary and our inclusive club of women and men who are business leaders in our community.
Bedford is an historic town, having been incorporated in 1729. Many who come here are fond of Bedford's historic places like the Old Burying Ground, The Wilson Mill, and the Job Lane House. Bedford also boasts the oldest complete flag in America. The original Bedford flag that was taken into battle at Lexington and Concord in 1775 still resides in town.
Bedford saw unique growth beginning in the 1950's. It was in 1956 that our Club, the Bedford Rotary Club, was formed. Bedford Rotarians have been instrumental in the initiation of several town projects like Spings Brook Park, Job Lane School Playground and the 9/11 Memorial. In 2006 the Rotary celebrated fifty years of service to Bedford. Yet, the Rotary does not just service Bedford.
There are today over 31,000 Rotary Clubs in 167 countries with over 1.2 million members. Rotary's focus is in promoting world peace and providing service to all people in need in our community and throughout the world. Rotary raises hundreds of millions of dollars annually to further these goals.
I thank you for visiting this site. We welcome everyone to explore what Rotary has to offer and how the Rotary club is special. Each Rotary club is special and has a different feel. We invite you to come join us - in a project or for lunch - our treat.
We hope you will join us in leading the way towards our Club's next fifty years!
Yours in Rotary,
Linda Cargiuolo, President
