The weather was perfect, and the occasion sublime! The grand opening of the Bear River Millyard cottages was a complete success in every way!
Those interested in the exciting development of the Bear River Recreation Millyard , and the future of Bear River, gathered on the shores of Bear River on Aug. 17 for a fun filled evening of food, music and comraderie. During the course of the evening the guests were treated to a look at the fabulous new accommodations, a glimpse of the new book about Bear River, fabulous food, remarks about the development of the property and delightful music by George Sloane, Dan Lagan, Jack Fuller and guest flutist, Ai.
The little yellow houses are the brilliant design of Frank Zimmeck, a true artist, and the guests delighted in the remarkable detail work that adorn the cottages. In fact, they delighted in everything about them…especially the view!

The Sixth Annual Bear River Winter carnival took place with rave reviews and while the weather was too mild for skating and too stormy on Sunday for the long trek events, the whole shebang was definitely a success and we all look forward to next year’s version.
And the fireworks were amazing!
Thanks to all the volunteers who put it together….
The Annapolis Highland Winery held their third annual fall festival and the weather was perfect, as was the food and wine. Music on the deck had everyone relaxed and enjoying the view while sampling different vintages from this award winning winery. Bear River is fortunate indeed to have such a thriving and exceptional enterprise in our backyard!
The Bass Fishing Tournament was held on Sept. 15 with absolutely no fish caught. But as co-chair Fred Miller said: “No big deal; everyone had a great time anyway and that’s what it’s all about!”
But someone caught a big one….The Winner of the $1000 prize for biggest fish from the Bear River Millyard Recreation is Brian (B.J) Trimper. Nice job guys…congratulations!
There was lots of fun on Millyard day, August 18, down at the Bear River Millyard Recreation. While there were no takers for the mud race, there was still a great time to be had.
There used to be a number of sawmills in Bear River and Bob Benson has put together a great display with the names of those who worked in the mills and some great photos of former glory. Also on display is a tribute to Bill Morine, fisherman extrordinaire of Bear River.
It doesn’t have to be Millyard day to drop down and enjoy some social time and great buys. the Millyard Market is open on Saturdays from 10 to 3.
