Last year Helen Lloyd lived in South Carolina via California. Then her and her daughter moved to Lincoln, NE. In the process of the moves she brought a project with her. Helen was making some Hug A Bears when she was an officer in the pioneers located in California. Helen had some bears made and sewed but she need some filler and a few other items to finish the bears she had.
The Heartland council had a meeting with director Elaine Housley at the Omaha Hug A Bear work site located at the Maple Ridge Retirement Center on 5 November 2019. Helen came up from Lincoln and met with Elaine at our meet and greet meeting with Elaine. Helen was the treasurer for the New Frontier Chapter and told all that she would like to finish the Bears she had brought with her to Lincoln. She talked with chair Steve Dawkins and he sent her home with some supplies to finish her bears.
Elaine finished the Hug A Bears and donated all of them to the Lincoln police department to give to children in the Lincoln area. The Lincoln police took a picture of Helen and her bears and posted it to their Facebook page. They thanked Helen and told her how much they appreciated the bears.
