Suzanne & Co.
HOLIDAY HOUSE TOUR
Sunday, December 10, 2017
The Bedford Chamber of Commerce invites residents to get in the holiday spirit with a stroll through some of Bedford Center’s most beautiful homes, festively decorated for the season during the Suzanne & Company Holiday House Tour from 1 to 4 pm on Sunday, December 10,
Advance tickets are $20.00 for adults, $15.00 for seniors and children 8-12, $10.00. On the day of the event they will be $25.00. Tickets are available Great Road Galleries, 363 Great Road; New England Nurseries, 216 Concord Road; the Chamber office, 12 Mudge Way in Town Center; and on line at www.bedfordchamber.org.
There are 6 homes on this year’s tour, all so different from one another yet each displaying the warmth that the holidays bring!
The little green house at the corner of Otis Street and South Road started life as a family home in 1929, at the time of Bedford’s 200th anniversary as a town. Built by Myron Waite, father of Bill Waite and grandfather of Bill Waite Jr., Myron was the first of three generations of builders. Look for his black-and-white photo on the kitchen wall, taken when he was chief of the Bedford Volunteer Fire Department.
The tour’s Hartford Street home has undergone a complete transformation, with a modern style that balances the character of the Craftsman Bungalow. Another of the homes will feature an old-fashioned holiday, with treasures gathered during a time when the family lived in Germany.
A special gift and refreshments will be available at Ken’s Pub.
Proceeds from the Holiday House Tour help to fund the Charles Hume Scholarship, awarded annually to a Bedford High School senior. For more information, please contact Maureen Sullivan, Executive Director of the Bedford Chamber of Commerce, at 781-275-8503.

The Economic Development Office is pleased to announce a new permitting guide that is targeted to small businesses to help them navigate the process of permitting and licensing a new or expanding business in Bedford.
The guide is in an easy-to-read and user-friendly format to promote small business enterprise in Bedford and encourage the types of businesses that Bedford residents would like to see more of based on our recent Great Road Market Study survey.
The permitting guide is the result of collaboration between the departments of Economic Development, Planning, Board of Health, and Code Enforcement. We would also like to thank the Bedford Chamber of Commerce for invaluable input in early drafts.
To view the guide, please download a copy here: Permitting Guide for Small Businesses.
