    Back by popular demand is the Bedford Elementary School Parent Teachers Organization Fall Festival, which will be held this Saturday at the school, located at 204 Mount Pleasant Road north of Bedford.
    The event returns after an absence of one year and the organizers are excited to be offering good food, games, fellowship, a crowning of royalty and an auction. The PTO has implemented a “hunter’s lunch” due to the festival being on opening day of deer season.
