    Special to The Trimble Banner
    The past several years Bedford Rotary Club has been treated with visitations from Trimble County Middle School Beta Club members, along with their sponsor/teacher, Crystal Harris. The Beta Club is an honor society of students who maintain A and B averages in classes, and carry out projects in academics and crafts. Club members must also provide at least 10 hours of community service annually. Service projects may include trash pick-up, work for teachers, prom assistance, and church volunteering, among others.
