Bedias Homecoming pushed to 2021

Posted

Many of us will be missing our cherished Easter celebrations and joining with friends and family for those wonderful Easter traditions. Please let us not forget the true reason for our gathering together and continue to hold in our hearts that faith and hopefulness the season teaches us to proclaim and mirror in our daily lives.

Also, as we spend our days at home with loved ones, searching too often bare shelves at our local retail stores, or making a quick stop at a favorite eating place for a to go meal, please take the opportunity to offer an encouraging and cheerful word to all within speaking or waving distance, our hearts need that essential uplift, perhaps now, more than any time in recent memory. Thank you to all who remain at their duty stations and to those who are keeping the home fires burning during this season of trial and testing.

The monthly Bedias Civic Club meeting, as well as the Easter Egg Hunt planned for Saturday, were canceled along with this month’s Bedias Women’s Club meeting set for April 23, and our long anticipated Bedias Homecoming celebration set for mid-June is now rescheduled for June 2021.

The Bedias Museum and Library will be closed through April, but a special collection of books will be available on the library steps for Bedias area residents to take home and share with friends and family.
