Background Information
The Bedford Parks & Recreation Department is proud to introduce the return of two staff members to the Recreation Department at no taxpayer expense; they are Penelope Penguin and our new Travel & Tour Directors.

They are excited to see what is out there beyond the Recreation Department office walls. The Travel &Tour Directors responsibilities require them to accompany Bedford residents on their vacation to ensure a wonderful experience.

The T&T Directors have a sign out sheet in Miss Jane’s office at the Town Office Building so you will be able to check out their travel calendar to see when they are available and feel free to stop in and check out their journals to see where they have visited. You can also keep up to date on the T&T Directors by visiting our website:

Miss Jane said “I am very excited to have Peter & Penny coming back onboard and joining the Recreation Department staff.” If you have questions about the T&T Directors, you can call Miss Jane at 472-5242.

The Travel & Tour Directors program is open to any Bedford family that would like to take one of our Directors along with you on your family vacation. The T&T Directors travel very lightly with their own backpack and a journal and always formally dressed for any occasion. All we ask is that you record their trip and if you take pictures please place them in the journal.
