Photo of the Week - Clarissa Bear

Randee Hall, director of community services and marketing for Ecumen Bethany Community in Alexandria, took this photo while she was in Clarissa visting her grandparents, Marge and Harlan Darr, on May 1. The bear spent the day roaming around, climbing up and down trees, taking an afternoon nap in an elm tree and having supper at a bird feeder. “He stood up and looked right at me as I took this photo,” said Hall.
