Business Beautification Award winner: Beford Federal’s Jenkins Park
The Bedford Chamber’s Beautification Award is the annual recognition by the nominating committee of a local business whose investment significantly impacted our community’s appearance. Jenkins Park was a project completed by Bedford Federal Savings Bank, which included the creation of a walkway, green space with seating, expanded parking, and relocation of the bank’s ATM. The plan also widened the alley between the east side of the property and Limestone Café.
Community Service Award winner: Susan Miller
The Bedford Chamber’s community service award is a recognition of an outstanding individual who has spent their career or a significant portion of their time at the service of our community. Susan Miller has been the Director at the Bedford Public Library for almost 40 years, and throughout her career, she has been dedicated to providing needed services to any and all members of our community free of charge. During her time at the Library she has developed after-school learning programs, raised funding for backpacks and Christmas presents for underprivileged youth, encouraged student enrollment in the 21st Century Scholars program, and created programs that provided one on one tech support for any age. Outside of the Library, Miller has served as a Board Member of the Bedford Chamber of Commerce, a Steering Committee Member of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library in Bedford, and carried the torch during the Indiana Bicentennial Torch Relay.
