Bedford Council on Aging Art/Memorial Fundraiser
We are looking for a couple of students who would be willing to offer a couple of hours on Saturday, April 7th at the Bedford Council on Aging. The activity for which we need volunteers is rock painting but no experience is necessary. It would essentially being present should someone need supplies, have questions, etc. Those of us volunteering at the Art Show and involved with the Bedford Council on Aging will be available should the BHS student volunteers have questions. This is the annual memorial Art Show for one of our Bedford students who died unexpectedly at the age of 19 from myocarditis. Because he was an artist as well as a volunteer at the Council on Aging, we combine Jacob Throckmorton's two passions and hold a memorial fund raiser Art Show.
We also need a few artistically talented students to paint some panels before April 5th. Speak with Mr. Hagan if you're interested in painting these.
Contact Diane Pascucci if you are interested in helping with rock painting or with painting the panels!
