There’s a pack of 10 Golden Bears moving from house to house during the week of September 17th-24th.  For a donation of just $50.00 we will set up a pack of 10 big Golden Bear signs in any yard in Upper Arlington.  You just tell us where.  The Bears will stay for one night and then migrate to new territory the next day.
