Due to the forecast for inclement weather, the Bedford County Historical Society has canceled its quarterly meeting, scheduled for Saturday, along with a presentation by Jared Frederick on “The Dispatches of D-Day.” The society will reschedule the meeting at a later date.

About 14 vendors had been scheduled to take part, and entertainment was to be provided. Tickets are $20 and are available online at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/feel-the-heat-chili-soup-cookoff-tickets-84783231929 and at Juli’s Wearable Art and HeBrew’s.
