Burghbears Membership Meeting
August 8, 2017
Old vs Young – After the board talking extensively, about old vs young, went back to our mission statement, and will continue to adhere to this.
The Burgh Bears are a non-profit social group for bears and their admirers, and allies, created to both promote social/recreational activities for its members, as well as charitable fundraising for the local community. The Burgh Bears are an equal opportunity/affirmative action group that embraces all forms of diversity, not limited to attraction, disability, gender identification, race, religion, and sex.
New Programs Starting – We are proud to bring the following programs to the bear group.
a.) Bears on the Prowl – the second Saturday of the month we will be doing “Bears on the Prowl”. This event will be different every month but it gives us an opportunity to have an all inclusive event on a weekend that does not involve being out extra late or going to a bar, which has been requested by several of our members. Our first one will be miniature golfing and going out for ice cream. There has already been an event posting made with more specific details. For September 9, we are looking into going to the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival. We will have an event posting with specifics posted after August’s event. For October we are thinking about doing a Haunted House. This event is one that is definitely up to our members to decide what is done each month. If you guys have any ideas or suggestions, please reach
out and let us know.
b.)Bear Happy Hour – take place on the third Friday of every month starting August 18 at 5801, there is an event posting with more specific details for that one as well. We are hoping to try different bars and venues each month for this as well. Again, we are open to different places we can visit.
c.)Foodie Tour – there has been interest in us doing a night out with the intent of trying different local eateries to appeal to the foodies in the club.
We are trying to have more regular events set up so that there is plenty for our members to do, and also make sure that we cover all facets of our membership. We want enough different events set up so that every member feels that there is something that appeals to them. We do not expect our members to attend every event, but we do hope that this provides a way for people to try new things, maybe step out of their comfort zone a little, as well as have options in which events they feel like attending.
Camp Davis Camping Event – is upcoming event Aug 18, 19, 20, 2017 Please contact Camp Davis to make reservations, more information will be talked about in social events time.
