The Bear River Story

The Bear River Innovation, Development, and Growth Society (BRIDGS) presents

The Bear River Story

This year the Hessians, the Loyalists and the 60’s Flower Children all return to Bear River as their stories are enacted in the streets of downtown Bear River.

“They came seeking a freer life…those who migrated here in the late 1700’s up
to the 1970’s sought safety and freedom from oppression, or sometimes just a new
home where they could live their lives peacefully, creatively, and independently.”

The stories of those whose lives were changed, here between the hills, will be retold in a series of vignettes at the Oakdene Centre and outdoor venues
beginning in mid-August in a new play by local writer/director Hal Theriault.
The Grand Opening of The Bear River Story will take place at the Oakdene Centre, Bear River, August 18th and 19th, 2007, at 7:30 pm. A dramatic reading of The Bear River Story will be held at Oakdene on Saturday, July 14th at 7:30 pm. For further information, please call 245-5629.
