Social Bears

The weekly Bear Coffee social is a great opportunity to catch up with friends and this week it was accessorized by the club banner.

If you haven’t been to one of these, why not??

Pride 2019

It was a beautiful sunny day for this year’s Pride Day celebrations and the Ottawa Bears partied in style by dancing and marching in the parade while handing out treats to onlookers.

We also setup and manned a booth at the Pride Street Festival to help raise awareness and promote positive body image.

A great time was had by all!

Bears in the Woods a success!

The bears enjoyed a wonderful weekend of fun and frolic in the woods at Plein Bois Camping.

From the popular pizza party to long evenings on the deck enjoying summer drinks to splashing in the pool to some fun summer tunes, it seems everyone had a great time!

Summer Bar Night supports CRR

Thanks to all those who came out and supported the Ottawa Bears recent bar night at T’s Pub. The 50/50 Draw sold $204 of tickets, and Michael was the lucky winner of half ($102). But big bear hugs to Michael, who donated back more than half of his winnings to support Mr. Ottawa Bear’s selected charity, Capital Rainbow Refuge (CRR). The Ottawa Bears host a bar night on the last Saturday in any month where there are five Saturdays.

Sushi and Bar Night Success

Here are some photos from the Sushi and Bar Night that took place on Saturday, June 29th. Some good food, good drinks and good friends always make for a really fun evening.

Thanks for all who came out to hang with the bears.
