Bedford resident Rich Hamilton set a goal for himself at the beginning of the summer: swim 50 miles and collect pledges for each mile to benefit the Food Pantry. Thanks to Rich's hard work and many loyal supporters, he surpassed his goal by four miles, raising over $1,500 in the process. You can read more about Rich's undertaking at the Facebook page SWIM 50 FOR BEDFORD FOOD PANTRY. We sincerely appreciate this significant fund raising effort--many, many thanks to Rich and everyone who pledged!
