Bedford County Supervisor John Sharp shared a statement from the County Administrator that reads:

The December 9th Bedford County Board meeting will be at the Liberty High School Auditorium. It has a capacity for 800, which is about the best we can do. One drawback worth noting is that firearms are not permitted on school property (even if it is a non-school event after school hours).

Sharp said he is looking forward to having a standing room only crowd at the school venue like the crowd of hundreds that showed up for the Bedford County Board of Supervisors meeting on Monday, November 25.

100 Liberty Minutemen Dr., Bedford, VA 24523
