At our Gala 2017, we honored David & Melanie Worby and announced our Early Literacy Initiative, a five-year effort to increase outreach and services for families with young children, sponsored by a $100,000 commitment from the Worbys. Town Supervisor, Chris Burdick presented a proclamation from the Town of Bedford. See photos here. Special thanks to everyone for creating a fun and successful event!
