UNK- The Frank House, located on the University of Nebraska at Kearney West Campus, will hold a Teddy Bear Picnic for children ages 3 – 12 this Saturday (Sept. 18).

The event, which will take place from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m., will feature an afternoon of teddy bear crafts, games and snacks. Admission, which is a donation to the Frank House, is $6 per person.

“Children are asked to bring their favorite teddy bear or teddy bear-type of stuffed animal,” said Sarah Jones, Frank House director.  Preregistration is required. Tickets are available from the Frank House Monday – Friday, 2-5 p.m.

Individuals who cannot come to the Frank House during those hours can also preregister by telephone by calling the Frank House at 308.865.8454 and leaving their names, their children’s ages and their phone number on the answering machine.

“Each child must be accompanied by a responsible adult,” Jones said. “We are asking that there be no more than two children per adult. If guests want to bring more than two children, they must bring a second adult to supervise.

“Also, each child is encouraged to bring one stuffed toy,” she added. The Frank House is no responsible for lost or stolen items. More information about the Teddy Bear Picnic and other upcoming events is available on the
