Bright Star Promotions, Inc. presents the . . .
29th Annual Columbus

Left to right: John and Sharon Fey, Valerie Rogers, Linda Henry Bovin and Debbie Welsh.

The show sponsors, past and present, gathered for dinner the night before the show
and reminisced about the last 29 years and the sadness we all feel about its closing.


"Wish we could have held on until we celebrated 30 years," began Valerie, "but the hotel
is being torn down and collectors are now buying at our popular online shows."


Before the show opened:

Prior to the opening of the show, Valerie Rogers, the show's promoter, presented Cindy McGuire with a Winner's Certificate.  Her bear in the wagon was used for the show's advertising.

Way to go Cindy!


Terrie Stong, of Good Bears of the World presented the present show promoter,
Valerie Rogers with a Certificate of Appreciation and
Sharon and John Fey (past promoters) took their bows too.


Meet the Stars of the Show!


Is a certain bear still lingering in your mind?


Contact the artist to see if it is still available or they might even
have enough materials to make a similar one for you!
