The annual Toys for Tots toy collection was held Saturday at the parking lot at Bedford Square, Snake Spring Township. Marine Corps members were assisted by the Bedford County Sheriff’s Department, Everett Police Department and Pennsylvania State Police, along with Bedford and Everett fire departments and Raystown and Saxton ambulances. The event also included a food vendor and car-seat safety checks by the state police. Above, Bedford County Sheriff Wayne Emerick poses with some of the toys collected Saturday for Toys for Tots.
