Spooky Stories!

We really did not have a “guest” speaker today. Instead we were treated to some spooky stories told by our own Linda Cargiuolo and Ralph Hammond. All absolutely true with no embellishment, of course!

Sleep in Heavenly Peace Delivery

Last year the club participated in a District Grant for Sleep in Heavenly peace and we ended up building 22 beds for needy families. Recently Sze-Wen and Victor delivered three of those beds to a family who recently moved here from Nigeria. It was good to see the beds being put to good use!

Operation Pollination

Christopher Stein joined us to tell us a little about Operation Pollination. Chris has been with the National Park Service for over 40 years. He started with the National Parks Service right here at Minuteman National Historical Park. He then transferred to the Great Smokey Mountain National Park in Tennessee in the mid 1990’s where he joined Rotary. From there he was off to Yosemite National Park where he became president of the Yosemite Valley Rotary Club in 2005. Chris now lives in Northeast Iowa, is still a Rotarian in District 5970, is a member of that district’s “Path’s & Pollinator’s Committee,” and is a member of RI’s Environmentally Sustainable Rotary Action Committee (ESRAG). Chris gave his talk via zoom from Minnesota.

The Bedford Rotary Foundation

Funding for Rotary projects comes from The Rotary Foundation in a variety of ways. Are you aware funding for many of our clubs local projects comes from The Rotary Foundation of Bedford? The two are very different. From time to time we’ll present information regarding both in an attempt to keep you up to date. I hope.

Sze-Wen Kuo This year’s chair of the Rotary Foundation of Bedford was our guest speaker this week. What she said in just a few minutes spoke volumes of what we are all about.  We owe a great deal to Sze-Wen and her husband Victor Tom. Month after month, year after year, this amazing couple are giving of their talents (which are many), their time, and their financial resources to make our Rotary club and all its projects successful.

End of Summer Family Picnic

2 0 Rotarians and assorted spouses, children, grandchildren, and pets descended on the portion of Nat’s property known as “The Knoll” on Saturday morning (August 28, 2021) for a few hours of fellowship, good food, games, and a lot of catching up.  Like most of our gatherings used to be, it can easily be summed up by saying “just some old friends getting together to pass some time together.” Nat was his usual gracious host supplying and cooking hot dogs, hamburgers, salads, and soft drinks. Debi was there making sure everything was in order, she and Marc shared photography duties (I’m the one that caught Marc taking pictures of everyone else (gotcha)! There was also several plates of Watermelon and brownies. Someone brought a box full of thickly iced cupcakes which were also a big hit. (I tried to sterl them but got caught!).I’m sure we solved all of the world’s problems in 2021 but nobody would own up to it. Nat also brought along a few four-wheelers for all of us to drive around and explore. The event was supposed to be over at 2:00 PM but as we usually do, at 2:45 PM folks were still sitting around and talking. Nat, you had a wonderful idea and between you and Debi, you pulled it off. Thank you, thank you, thank you from all of us.

Flatbread Pizza Gathering

There was no regular meeting today which is why there is no Happy dollars or speaker’s synopsis. But that doesn’t mean we didn’t have fun! We have gotten together during this pandemic several times, but mostly for service projects (such as Bike Helmet day, Memorial Park cleanup, Building beds for kids, etc.) But not for just having a meal together, talking about nothing in particular, just a group of old friends who haven’t had much chance to renew friendships and share stories like old friends do. There were 27 of us at Flatbreads Tuesday evening, a combination of Rotarians (19 of those, plus an assortment of wives, husbands, and one daughter). President Paula had the good sense to move the event indoors (concerned about mosquitoes) and it’s a good thing she did because not only were there mosquitoes, but there were also thunderstorms too! Good thinking Paula.

A Sweaty Day of Service

July 15th 
Neither heat nor humidity nor dirt and dust nor painful blisters kept Bedford Rotarians from engaging in volunteer service at Habitat for Humanity’s latest house renovation project in Concord.
Throughout a very hot and muggy day, a cadre of 10 Bedford Rotary members joined with Concord Rotarians to help renovate and convert an older, ranch-style house into separate, individual homes for two qualified families selected to participate in the Habitat for Humanity program.

 A year in the life of a Rotary Club

2020-2021 Rotary year was, for sure, like no other. An organism smaller than the head of a needle had flipped our world upside down. We were no longer meeting in person and were all getting used to something called “Zoom.” As Rotarians were asking the questions you would expect Rotarians to ask; How can we help? Little did we know, at that time, how much we could help:

Building Beds for Kids

Posted by Sze-Wen Kuo
What would you do if you found that about 2% or about 70,000 of kids in Massachusetts has no bed to sleep on? Chris Alphen, Rotarian from Concord Massachusetts started a chapter of Sleep In Heavenly Peace in Littleton, Massachusetts and started building and delivering beds in 2018. Learning about the cause, the Rotary Club of Bedford submitted and was awarded a District 7910 grant,  Beds for Kids for 2020-2021, to help build 22 beds (we ended with 20 beds because the price of lumber went up).

Robert Mead 1924 - 2021

Posted by Bob Cassidy on Apr 05, 2021
The Rotary Club of Bedford suffered a terrible loss this week. The last of our founding members has slipped away from us. He was there in the beginning and all the way through our 65 years of working around Bedford and the world. I would categorize him as a quiet man. To quote a phrase, a quiet man that carried a big stick! In the 40+ years I’ve known Bob I don’t think I ever heard him raise his voice, but he always managed to get things done. He wasn’t the kind of man that would participate in open floor debates. He preferred to work his magic behind the scenes. One of the things he was most proud of in Rotary was his perfect attendance in Rotary. Bob had perfect attendance for over 50 years, and we loved him for it. When he was hospitalized we actually cancelled our regular meeting and held it in his hospital room at Leahy. With tears in his eyes, all he could say was “Thank You!”

I’m here Bob, to as you to be our president next year. We’re in a hell-of-a-mess and I think you can straighten it out, and I’ll be there in the background to help you. I said yes, we did straighten it out, and the rest is history. Our club has done a lot of projects in and out of Bedford over the past 65 years. And Bob has been the champion of many of them and participated in all of them. If Bob heard of a problem around town, or if any of our members were having difficulties you could count on a “private” visit from Bob, and he would do his best to solve the problem. If it required the help of the club, he would organize it, if it were a private problem of one of our members he would solve it for them if he could, He did not want nor did he ever asked for anything in return. I knew of some of these instances and lets just say, there were a lot of them over the years.

What Happened to Breakfast with Santa?

Writing this today, Monday, December 7th, 2020, as the Coronavirus pandemic rages around us, memories from a happier, more normal time come to mind.
One year ago to the day, it was a Saturday. Rotary club members were in the last minute scramble of preparations for their signature event of the year. The next day, Sunday, Bedford Rotary’s 33rd annual “Breakfast with Santa” would bring families and children to the decoration transformed Santa’s Village inside Bedford High School’s cafeteria.
That was last year.

Bedford Rotary Scavenger Hunt

On a warm sunny day in November, nine families exercised their hunting skills and had a blast searching for seventy five items in their community. Thirty one participants, including four furry family members used creativity and strategies to earn points. Six crews set out around Bedford, one on the cape, and one in Hudson. They searched for statues, and rotary signs, they reenacted the famous Beatles Abby Road album cover, and interpreted items in their own way. Russell Swinton said  "This was a wonderful event. Bethany and I had a terrific time!"

In the words of our PDG Bob Cassidy, this has been a difficult time for our Bedford club, for we have suffered a terrible loss. How do you say goodbye to an old friend who has been a member of Rotary for 35 years?  Past President, GSE Team Leader, Unsung Hero of D7910, and whether it was RYLA, ESSEX, or Gift of Life, if it involved children and students, especially those from other countries, Kevin was whole-heartedly involved.

Thanks For The Memories - and More

When the Pelligrino girls attended Breakfast with Santa this year, they were adding to a decade’s worth of memories of what is a family tradition. “Our family has been attending the Rotary Club Breakfast with Santa every year, except one, since we moved to Bedford in 2008, said the girl’s mom, Elena. “My daughters are now 10 and 13 and remind me of this tradition. We love looking at the photos each year, progressing their ages with Santa. To this day, they are sad we missed that one year”, she says.

Santa’s Coming to Bedford... AGAIN!


A long time ago Rotarians invited Santa to make a special, early visit to Bedford in December. 

In the spirit of the holidays, come have breakfast with us, they said. Meet our town’s children and their parents.

That’s how the Breakfast with Santa tradition began. Maybe some of you were kids then and remember. Maybe in years past you’ve brought your own children to meet Santa. He returns every year.

Thanksgiving in Bedford 2018

Posted by Bob Cassidy on Nov 25, 2018
Each year, the Bedford and Concord Rotary Clubs get together for a football luncheon. One year it is held in Bedford, the next year it is held in Concord. The 2018 luncheon was held in Bedford, and featured a one-of-a-kind speaker: Bedford's own Mike Rosenberg, who has attended 35 years of Thanksgiving football games. He offered a window into his sports-writing technique and reminded us all about what high school sports are all about ...
