Fifty Three years and Counting

Published August 6, 2015 by oddacity designs

It was July 14th. 1962. Fifty Three years ago, and the day Barry and Sheila Cassidy tied the knot and became man and wife.  What a lot of water under the bridge, most of it in Bear River where they moved in 1972. Hallelujah.

So it was a great occasion for a celebration, and celebrate they did, with a wonderful gathering of friends and an enormous amount of incredibly delicious food.

Fortunately, both the Cassidy’s have a delicious sense of humor….maybe you can tell by the cake they ordered…

the cake, complete with photo made of icing!

In case you can’t make it out, the writing with the arrow says “I’m with stupid”  Needless to say the cake was a huge success.

Many more happy anniversaries to this fantastic couple.

Ocne again the town was filled with visitors and villagers munching on cherries, with the celebrations of the 122 Bear River Cherry Carnival. From the children’s parade in the morning until the last fireworks, the day was a great success.  People caught up with friends and family and it was wonderful to see so many smiling people.

2nd – Evan Trimper – future Firefighter  –  Proud parents are Diana Nickerson and Travis Trimper
3rd  – Sadie Parker and Ayden D’Ambrose – Future Myrtle and Rosie’s employees  –  Proud parents are Melissa Parker and Janelle D’Ambrose

People’s Choice goes to Andrew Henshaw for his Bear River History float that he made himself. Proud parents are Matt & Joy Henshaw

And yes, David Isles won the greased pole event yet again!  Congratulations.

A huge round of applause to the Bear River Fire Department who sponsored the event and the hundreds of volunteer hours put into the production of the Carnival.  What would Bear River do without you!  Well done and we look forward to next year!

A Great Reason to celebrate!

Published September 2, 2013 by oddacity designs

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!
