As it turns out, Burton Bear will be celebrating a birthday on Friday, February 4th. Due to the overwhelming amount of people that have asked how to get a gift to give him, there is a plan in action. Those of you wishing to give Burton Bear something for his birthday, you can take it to Rally's (Bristol Road and Saginaw Street) in Burton. Burton Bear of course will be there for a few hours on his birthday as well. Rest assured if you drop off something for BB, and he is not there - he will indeed get it.

I want to make it very clear that in no way shape or form is Burton Bear asking for gifts (see post above). Burton Bear has brought a lot of smiles and laughs to our community. People just want to give back, it is as plain and simple as that. You don't have to break the bank to show your support, a note or a card I am sure would brighten this young man's bear's day.

If you are not familiar with Burton Bear, he is a teenager from the Burton area. You will see him around the Burton area wearing a giant bear suit. He loves meeting people and taking pictures. I love the fact that so many people are now going on 'bear hunts' to find him and get a selfie. I spoke with one woman who told me her young daughter wants to be a 'Burton Bear' when she is older. How cool is that?
