The Yanks pushed the Confederates southward on 19 Jul
It was a fierce battle on the banks of the Juniata. The Confederates tried to take Old Bedford Village, but the Yanks pushed them back towards the village of Bedford. It was a hot day in the 90's with almost as much humidity, so if soldiers didn't drop from bullets, they dropped from the heat.
Help Old Bedford Village reach its $1M infrastructural rehabilitation goal. We have teamed up with Gazelle to promote recycling electronics that are collecting dust and turn them into a donation for our much needed maintenance of 200+ year old structures.
Gazelle will pay the postage and even send you a box if you need it. More information on this project can be located on our site: http://oldbedfordvillage.gazelle.com.
Old Bedford Village is starting to Recycle
We have taken our first steps to recycle ink cartridges, cell phones, and xerox cartidges. For each box we send in, the company will give OBV money, plus plant a tree in our name.
If you have any of the above, bring them into OBV and help the recycling efforts.
Items needed for Old Bedford Village
Do you have something around the house that is not being used, maybe OBV has a use for it. We are currently looking for two large roasters to use in the kitchen/tavern during special events. We received two new 6 qt. slow cookers this week.
Do you have a skill to donate -- we are in need of a plumber and handymen to assist with some repairs to our buildings.
And of course -- we are always looking for free firewood
