Updated 8:09 pm, Wednesday, June 4, 2014
The Woman's Club of Greater New Milford will hold its 18th annual Teddy Bear Festival June 7 on the Village Green.
Festivities will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Offerings include vendors; visits and a fire safety presentation with Smokey the Bear, escorted by firefighters from Water Witch Hose Co. No. 2; storytelling; and games with prizes.
Attendees are invited to bring their favorite plush toys to the teddy bear hospital, where volunteer nurses from the Girl Scouts will offer checkups and surgeons will be on hand to make repairs.
New this year, the hospital will include an adoption center for bears in need of new homes.
Proceeds from the festival support the club's general fund.
