Although it's not the typical bear hunt, youth in Emo are enjoying a teddy bear hunt.
This event was organized be Leeann Galusha, she heard about it from her hometown in St. Augustine River QC.
It's something for kids and families to do during this time of isolation and self distancing.
Neighbours are doing an awesome thing by putting a teddy bear or stuffed animal in their window for children in the town can go around on a bear hunt.
So far 105 bears have been spotted And Leeann shared with me that 66 people have signed up in the Facebook page.
Such a great idea! I've spoken to a few children that have absolutely loved taking part in the hunt.
Thanks to Leeann for spearheading this and to all that has displayed a teddy bear or stuffed animal. Feel free to still take part with by displaying or putting your kids on your vehicle and start the hunt. For more information search Emo Bear Hunt.

Your community of friends and family wish you both many more happy years. Both men spent very quiet birthdays due to the COVID-19 Virus. Both can look forward to a celebration once things improve in our health conditions.
Sincere sympathy to the family and friends of Eugene Bullied. Your community is thinking of you at this sad time.
I'm sure it will not come to a surprise to everyone that Spring Fever Days will not take place this year due to the COVID-19 Virus.
