Breakfast On the Road ~ From Carleton-Willard Village to Bedford’s First Responders

Barbara Doyle, President and CEO of Carleton-Willard Village, and members of her staff brought breakfast to Bedford Police Chief Robert Bongiorno and his officers at the start of Labor Day weekend.


The Carleton-Willard delegation also brought breakfast to the Fire Department where Doyle met Chief David Grunes and two firefighters.

For the past 8 years, Barbara Doyle, President and CEO, of Carleton-Willard Village, has relished the opportunity to ‘give back’ to the first responders who support the residents of Bedford’s independent living and continuing care community throughout the year.

In normal times, the linens are pressed, the tables are set, and a breakfast buffet is ready for Bedford’s first responders who drop in as their schedules allow on the appointed day.

Because of 2020’s Covid restrictions, Doyle and CWV staff members took breakfast on the road, visiting both the Police Department and the Fire Station on Friday, September 4 at the start of the Labor Day holiday weekend.

It would apparently take more than a pandemic to interrupt Carleton-Willard’s tradition of thanking Bedford’s Fire and Police Departments.

Editor’s Note: Incidental Intelligence has learned that CWV’s esteemed tradition of Eggs Benedict was preserved in the meals delivered to the police and fire stations.
