LAST EVENT (April 2014)


The April Spring Pool Party at Coconut Cove – Even though the odds were against us with the concert on the beach and the unexpected rain shower, nearly 60 bears showed up out of the 120 that RSVP’d.  The rain stopped around 2pm and the pool was full of bears.  We would like to thank all the bears that showed up, David and his staff at Coconut Cove for hosting the party, DJ Sergio, and the several volunteers that helped with setting up, cooking, cleanup, etc.


Steve Visano, Board President, announced at the party some of the special events we have planned this year.  These include a bus day trip to Vitambi Springs Campgrounds and a Bear Tea Cruise.  Watch your email and the web site for more information.


Also presented was The Bears of South Florida’s logo necklace.  The necklace is designed locally by Tribal Son exclusively for The Bears of South Florida.  The pendant is in the shape of a bear’s head in sterling silver with a braided leather necklace.  Watch the web site for availability to members.  They should be available at the next pool party on May 4th for purchase.



We are planning several events this year for the members to enjoy.  We can always use volunteers to help coordinate events.  Setting up, cleaning up,  helping with the food and bar, working special events, etc.  If you are interested in volunteering email the Board at:


There are two Director positions open on the Board.  If you are interested in serving on the Board email the Board at: bearguide2 bearwww2(1280x1024)
