BEDFORD — The Bedford Men’s Club recently elected its board of directors for 2018: Dante D’Amato, president; Bob Friedburg, vice president; Steve Lawlor, treasurer; Bill Lange, secretary; and Tom Green, press chairman.

The club meets at Murphy’s Taproom on Route 101 the first Monday of each month at 7 p.m. The next meeting is March 5.

The club, which started in 1976, contributes to many organizations by generating income through fundraisers, including its annual Christmas tree sale. The club supports youth sports, education and betterment programs in town and provides scholarship to graduating high school students in Bedford.

Club leaders say involvement in the club and its projects helps members to grow personally, work with others as a team, make and develop contacts and learn how to see projects through to completion.

With its monthly meetings and social events, the club also is a way for the members to build friendships.

Any man 21 or older who lives or works in Bedford is eligible to become a member. For more details, go to bedfordmensclub.com.

Landscape designer to speak to Hollis garden club

HOLLIS — The Colonial Garden Club of Hollis will meet at 9 a.m. Tuesday, March 6, at the Lawrence Barn Community Center, 28 Depot Road.
