With children out of school and social distancing due to COVID-19, everyone is trying to find fun activities that don't involve social interaction. Kristi Hill started a Facebook Group based on the children's book, "We're Going on a Bear Hunt." The game is to drive around town and see how many bears, bunnies, monkeys or other stuffed animals you can find. The group has approximately 400 members who are actively hunting bears or who are participating by placing a stuffed animal outside, or visible from a window or door. Not only are residents joining in the fun, but area businesses have also placed animals in the windows or on the property.
