This Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Vista Clubhouse, friends of Rick “Bear” Bolhouse are getting together to try and raise enough money to get him some new hips.
Bear has been a valued member of our community for 18 years and for the last 17 of those years, very active in the Four Corners Folk Festival and all FolkWest activities.
On Sunday, there will be five popular local bands (String Theory, the Big’ns, Bluegrass Cadillac, JJ David’s Blues Band and the Shane Lane Band) providing the music. DJ Marcus will fill in the spaces along with Dave the Poet.
Breckenridge Brewery will provide the beer, and friends and relatives will provide food and refreshments.
A raffle, with the top prize being two patron passes to this year’s Four Corners Folk Festival, and a silent auction will top off the afternoon.
A $10 donation at the door is requested to join the party. It should be a good party, so come on out to the Vista Clubhouse on Port Avenue and join the fun while helping to support a good neighbor.
If you are unable to attend this Sunday and would still like to help, donations to the “BearFest” are being accepted at the Bank of the San Juans at 305 Hot Springs Blvd., P.O. Box 2830, Pagosa Springs, CO 81147.
