CSF OF BEDFORD 50TH ANNIVERSARY
SUNDAY NOVEMBER 9TH
Citizens' Scholarship Foundation of Bedford Dollars for Scholars is very excited to announce that Dr. Irving A Fradkin of Fall River, MA and founder of Dollars for Scholars will be attending our 50th Anniversary Reception on November 9, 2014 from 2 - 4 PM in the Great Room at Old Town Hall, 16 South Avenue, Bedford, MA.
Dr. Fradkin first visited Bedford 50 years ago on October 29, 1964 when he was invited as the keynote speaker at the Bedford High School Associates fall meeting to explain the goals and purpose of the Citizens' Scholarship Foundation. Since then Dr. Fradkin has made several trips to Bedford, the latest in 2007, and recently said he "continues to hold a soft spot for the wonderful Bedford Community. To have awarded more than $2.0 million to your youth is amazing..."
We look forward to welcoming the Bedford Community to this celebration. Please RSVP to CSF_Bedford@yahoo.com your intentions to join us in refreshments at this historic celebration and recognition.
BEDFORD DAY 2014
Thank you to everyone who turned out for a glorious Bedford Day and helped us celebrate our 50 Anniversary by walking in the Parade behind the lead car with Bedford's 2014 Citizen of the Year, Alma Pomponi, co-chair of the Dollars for Scholars Phone-a-thon.
We enjoyed visiting with all who stopped by our booth, participated in our various activities and learned more about our organization from our dedicated volunteers.
