Friends for Life Conference, Pasadena, California
July 17-21, 2002
Rufus and ten of his brother and sister bears spent a week at the CWD Friends for Life conference in Pasadena. The bears all sat together on a table in the exhibit hall - with their journals - and had lots of visitors! (Over 1,000 people came to say hello!) The Crowley family took great care watching over Rufus and his family of bears. At the end of the conference, they packed up all the Rufi and sent them across the country to the Billetdeaux's in Michigan for a bit of "bear freshening up!" Here is a picture of a few of the Rufus bears in Pasadena!
