Mike Norris, Class of 2004, helps out at the Bear Fever table at Boyertown’s Annual Sidewalk Sale. Earlier Bear Fever called on Mike’s muscle to assist Paul Stahl, organizer of Bear Fever. Together they picked up “Hal Bear-toia” from the TriCounty Chamber office in Pottstown so that “Hal” could spend his day in Boyertown.
