Bedford Main Street is happy to announce we have 3 new board members. Joining us to fill vacancies are:
Linda Kuczmarski is the owner (with her husband Rob) of Needful Things Antiques, located on N. Bridge St. Linda and Rob opened their shop in March of 2015 and feature all types of antiques from large furniture to hat pins. It is the only independently owed antique store in this area.
“We decided to open our business here in town to become part of the small town experience and keep it alive for future generations,” Linda said. Her hope is to bring more businesses to Bedford and make it a “destination”.
Linda is a 14 year Bedford County resident along with 2 sons, Robert and John. They have a farm in the county with cows and horses.
Todd Foreman is the Town of Bedford Chief of Police and brings a unique perspective to his role on the board. He is involved in this community and the area of Main Street on a daily basis and is dedicated to a unified approach to community development.
Todd says, “I have recently changed the Police Department’s mission statement and it includes improving the quality of life of the people who live and work in Town.”

“Bedford is located in the middle of two thriving and big idea towns. There is no reason that we shouldn’t be on that shopping, dining, and thriving highway. All roads and trails lead to Centertown!”

Please join us in welcoming these talented and dedicated individuals to the team!
