Bedford High School students who competed in National History Day will describe their projects in the first half of this program. The students will all receive awards from the Society. National History Day is an annual initiative designed to promote the teaching and learning of history. For many years, it has been an important milestone for the Junior Class at Bedford High School. It is an exciting way for students to study and learn about historical issues, ideas, people, and events. Students initially participate in the District Competition, with winners attending the State Competition, and winners there attending the National Competition.
The second half of the Sept. 26 program will provide a glimpse of some of the Historical Society’s many interesting artifacts and documents and an update on the Society’s pending move to the ground floor of Old Town Hall by Don Corey, long-time Society member and current Chair of the Board of Directors. The program will include some of the most ancient artifacts and some of the most recent additions.
