Proud to be a Big Part of Bedford Township!

Lake Erie Transit has a new bus wrap: "Ride with Pride in Bedford!" Obviously, we are really proud of our schools, students and the many opportunities we offer and are excited to see that reflected in the many images included on their vehicle. (It's just the tip of the BPS iceberg though....we think they need a bigger bus!) See who you know on the bus! Is it a member of our Bedford Express Robotics team, our Kicking Mules Marching Band, one of the CP Swagger kids, or an equestrian riding with pride!?!

Alumni Association Rallying Support After Fires

Three fires in the last four months have destroyed 3 buildings on the grounds of the Bedford High School campus near the Community Stadium. Each building was a storage area for equipment used by various athletic programs including football, baseball, and our track and field programs. Arson is suspected.

While the district does have insurance, depreciation on equipment accumulated and used over a number of years means we would not receive the full replacement value of the destroyed items. We have lost over $25,000 worth of equipment with the damage from the most recent fire still being assessed.

The Bedford Alumni Association is seeking to rally support for the hard working young men and women who bring pride to our athletic programs and who rely on the equipment to train and practice in a meaningful and competitive fashion.

Dustin Cress, President of the Bedford Alumni Association, has stated that the group would like to raise enough money not only to assist in replacing the damaged equipment, but also help the school in installing new security cameras and equipment to prevent such crimes from taking place in the future.

Anyone interested in helping can donate securely through PayPal at www.bedfordalumni.com/donate. Or a check can be mailed to the Bedford Alumni Association at 1623 West Sterns Road, Temperance, MI 48144. The Bedford High School Alumni Association is an approved 501(c)3 charity, meaning donations are tax deductible, and 100% of your contributions will go directly to the Athletic Department.

Anyone with information related to the fires is encouraged to contact the Monroe County Sheriff's Department. They can be reached at (734) 240-7700.

We appreciate the support of our friends, family, and community when times get tough. It helps keep us KICKING! Go Mules!
