Bedford Garden Club donates wreaths to town

BEDFORD — Kerri Coffey and Julie Bisbee, co-chairmen of the Bedford Garden Club’s Wreath Committee, recently organized a club workshop to create 13 holiday wreaths for Bedford’s public buildings and spaces as an annual gift to the town.

This year’s design features fresh evergreen wreaths with accents of natural materials including small bundles of mixed greens, pine cones and cinnamon sticks, and sparkling gold bows.

Club members have posted the wreaths at places including Bedford Town Hall, Burleigh Triangle, Bedford Public Library, the Town Office Building, the Bedford Safety Complex, the transfer station, and the Bedford Historical Society.
