Subject: RE: Whittlesey Straw Bear 2007
... actually, despite what is published elsewhere, the local newspaper reports Straw Bear Tuesday being held as late as 1913, so whatever happened in or before 1909 wasn't its last celebration.
There did seem to be more non-folk people around this year. The Letter B was packed, as was the Boat. The Hero had its annual beer festival, and it was good to see the George open again after last year's debacle.
