Teddy stories

Did your body outgrow childhood but leave the child mentality behind? Do you still sleep with your favorite bear or even display it in your home? This year is the 100th anniversary of the Teddy Bear, and we're looking for your stories. If you still have your favorite bear from childhood, talk to us.

Send your stories to: My Favorite Teddy, Newsroom, The Augusta Chronicle, P.O. Box 1928, Augusta, GA 30903-1928. You can also fax entries to 722-7403 or e-mail them to jennifer.hilliard@augustachronicle.com.

Please include your name, address and daytime and evening phone numbers. Submissions must be received by Friday, Nov. 8. We'll share the bear stories on Sunday, Nov. 17. For more information, call Jennifer Hilliard at 823-3223.
