The Bedford County Board of Supervisors in its July 22 regular meeting on Monday night, recognized the Huddleston Volunteer Rescue Department for its 50th anniversary and the Huddleston Volunteer Fire Department for its 60th anniversary.

The recognitions were presented by County Supervisor Edgar Tuck, who gave a framed proclamation to a representative from each department.

“We sincerely and respectfully thank them for all their selfless service to Bedford County,” Tuck said. “We appreciate it.”

On Saturday this weekend, both departments will celebrate their anniversaries with a big event at the Glenwood Center on Smith Mountain Lake Parkway. The opening ceremony will begin at at 3 p.m.

The event will also feature pictures with the fire department dalmation mascot; the Carilion Life Guard 10 helicopter; fire department demonstrations; a tractor safety demonstration; music; free health screenings (bone density, glucose and blood pressure) and free food.
