Hey Everyone, Just to let everyone know it has been decided we are going to cancel this coming Sunday Family Day so that we can focus more resources on a bigger celebration for our families in October and December. We decided that we wanted to dedicate the available resources we have to two large parties every other month instead of a small party every month. However, we encourage you still to come and visit on Sunday as it is Grandparents Day! Thank you for your understanding. Sincerely, Bickford Bloomington LEC

This afternoon Bickford in Bloomington was treated to a once in a lifetime event. We were just north of totality during a total solar eclipse. Lots of BFM's came outside to watch the different stages of the eclipse and the clouds that had covered the sky seemed to break just in time for the show to start. Some BFM's were moved to tears as it was the first eclipse in their lifetime others were flooded with memories from the last solar eclipse from their childhood.
