Ground Hog day surprised us with some snow but that did not stop 23 ladies from touring the fantastic Bear Hotel in Grants Pass. Evergreen Federal Bank owns this “hotel”, which is really a warehouse. Bear Hotel showcases the BearFest bears and a variety of community artworks. Throughout the year, Evergreen hosts customer appreciation events that transform the Bear Hotel into magical wonderlands. It truly was a magical wonderland and we all felt like we were at Disneyland! After the tour we had a wonderful lunch at the River’s Edge Restaurant. We had a table right by the window, overlooking the Rogue River. When lunch was finished, we were treated to a show by a beautiful Bald Eagle flying by and landing on a tree right in front of us. It was a fantastic day.
A special thank you to Betty Clement for suggesting this as an outing. We have some great outings planned for the rest of the year thanks to the wonderful suggestions from our members. Please be sure to keep those suggestions coming!
