Requirement for Membership

There is no Bedford residency requirement. We have members from Lexington, Billerica, Concord, Acton, Carlisle, and other nearby towns.

The Bedford Family Connection was founded in 1988 as a volunteer-run, community organization. Our mission is to strengthen our community by nurturing families, fostering friendships and learning through fun activities and enrichment programs for local families with any child age 5 and under.

The BFC provides members with a strengthened sense of community while creating and nurturing important relationships when our children are still young. An additional benefit is the number of lasting friendships it has fostered between families. As a member, you will also enjoy:
•A monthly BFC e-newsletter, which lists BFC events and news, other local family-oriented news/events, the playroom schedule, and members' and sponsors' classified ads
•The BFC Membership Directory
•Discounted admission to the BFC playroom
•Free (or low cost) children's activities every month
•Free (or low cost) parent education workshops every month
•Free (or low cost) special family events and parties 2-3x/year
•Monthly "Mom's Time Out" and "Dad's Corner" events
•Playgroups for similarly-aged children
•Numerous volunteer opportunities within the BFC organization
•Opportunities to participate in local charitable events

MNO: Movie screening of 'Bad Moms'

Thu Aug 4, 2016, 7:30–9:30 pm EDT

Need some comic relief to cool you down from the summer heat?

Join other BFC moms to see the movie "Bad Moms":

Young Amy (Mila Kunis) has a great husband, overachieving children, beautiful home and successful career. Unfortunately, she's also overworked, exhausted and ready to snap. Fed up, she joins forces with two other stressed-out mothers (Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn) to get away from daily life and conventional responsibilities. As the gals go wild with their newfound freedom, they set themselves up for the ultimate showdown with queen bee Gwendolyn and her clique of seemingly perfect moms.

We'll aim for a 7 or 9 pm show time. Meet in the theater lobby 15-20 minutes prior to show time.

*Alternate date: Sunday 8/7/16. Exact show time is TBA closer to event date.

Camp BFC: Pirate Day

Then stay and play as long as you'd like! Please RSVP on Big Tent so we can be sure to have enough popsicles for everyone. And of course, siblings are welcome!
