Due to a high probability of rain in the Bedford area on the 4th of July, Bedford Revitalization Inc. has decided to change the date of the community fireworks display to Saturday July 2nd. The decision to advance the schedule, versus postponing to later in the week, had to do with aligning schedules with the pyrotechnic service provider, in addition to providing a centralized community celebration. BBQ at the Quarry will already be taking place on Saturday July 2nd and will now include the Limestone Heritage Festival Fireworks display at dusk. The fireworks display will be visible from the Downtown Square and surrounding area.
Other events scheduled for Monday July 4th will still proceed as scheduled. The Veteran’s Breakfast taking place at Golden Corral on Monday July 4th will take place at 7:30am. The plan for the Limestone Heritage Festival Parade is to continue as scheduled. Should thunderstorms be occurring in our area at 9am on Monday July 4th, the parade will be canceled.
The community is encouraged to stay connected to changes or announcements by following Parades of Bedford or Facebook and the parade website - www.bedfordinparades.com. Information will also be posted on BRI’s website - www.downtownbedford.org .

Mayor John Hamilton and Bloomington Fire Chief Jason
Moore will present Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department
lifeguard Ryan Killoran with the City’s Civilian Lifesaving Award at a
ceremony on June 30th at 11:45 a.m. at Mills Pool.
Last Monday, Killoran, a lifeguard at Mills Pool, rescued a
five-year-old child from the pool. He recently took a CPR class
through the Bloomington Fire Department, and firefighters who
responded to Mills Pool following the emergency call credit Killoran’s
knowledge of lifesaving skills, and his decisive actions, for saving
the child’s life.
The child regained consciousness before emergency first responders
arrived, and the child is expected to make a full recovery.
Members of the public are invited to attend the ceremony, and to join
the City in showing its gratitude to Ryan Killoran and the
lifeguarding staff at Mills Pool.
