Teddy Bears to be Featured at the Holiday Season

Faithful companion. Friend when afraid. Naptime cuddler.

The above poem and phrases describe the treasured teddy bears from our childhood.

We would like to feature those treasured ‘friends’ for our holiday display this year. And we would like you to share the stories associated with them. The exhibit will open on Friday, November 9 and continue through the holidays, closing on Saturday, January 19, 2013. If you are willing to share your bear, please call Gary Parks, Director, or email him at While on display, the bears will be properly displayed in showcases. And…we promise not to overfeed them!
