Swingin' Bears provide teddy bears


Eleanor Herrick, left, Swingin’ Bears Square Dance Cub president, and Karen Ellis, Community Concepts in Oxford, are pictured with 418 stuffed toys club members collected for “Right Start For Kids” in the Oxford Hills area. The annual Teddy Bear Dance scheduled for Dec. 9 was canceled due to weather. However, members brought what they had collected to their Christmas party when Ray Hilton, club caller, called for an evening of square dancing instead of the usual class and workshop.
