    It was a quiet meeting at Bedford Rotary on Aug. 9. In fact, few sounds were apparent for the better part of 30 minutes except for low background recorded gospel music and the silent “swish” of Robin Welty’s art tools as she completed a full picture starting with just a blank, white paper. The full picture was not apparent until she turned on the black lights above and below the production at the end to reveal a quite inspiring work of art.

  • Fortunately for me the wasps and I have declared a ceasefire. I no longer have to avoid the unexpected sting of a winged sniper. Earlier this summer I often found myself pinned down in crossfire on a daily basis. Now, I can walk around my house undisturbed; I sometimes do it just because I can.

    John Bayer descried his exchange trip as “the time of my life” when he went to Mexico as part of the Rotary foreign exchange student program. John said he enjoyed the beach and tried water skiing for the first time. The crafts there, he said were beautifully made from natural materials such as herbs and spices.
