LOCAL NEWS - MARCH 24, 2020: BLANC-SABLON, QC.
"We're going on a bear hunt. We're going to catch a big one. What a beautiful day! We're not scared." These words are from Michael Rosen's very popular children's book called 'We're going on a bear hunt' which has sparked a movement of communities placing teddy bears and stuffed animals in their windows across our nation. The purpose is to give children and their families a fun community activity of 'bear searching' in their vehicles while respecting the social distancing measures.
There are special public Facebook pages that have been created where different regions of people can display a photo of their bear in the window of their home waiting for kids of all ages to spot them during their community bear hunt. There is a LNS Bear Hunt public page on Facebook that has been created that you can join to participate, so far every community of the Lower North Shore has joined in on the fun as well as CFBS radio in Blanc-Sablon! Stop by and check out our bears of hope and fun with positive messages in our windows.
CFBS would like to invite everyone to participate, a positive movement of beloved teddy bears and stuffed friends who are spreading joy to all during the COVID-19 pandemic.
