Hello to current / past members and friends of the River City Bears!

The year 2013 was an interesting and trying year for the club, filled with many restaurant nights, bear nights, guest bartender nights, and chances to see friends and make new ones. With your membership support and our fund raising activities, we were able to donate $1000 to the Central Illinois FRIENDS of People with AIDS to help continue HIV Support groups in Peoria.

September 29th, 2013, was a sad evening for the club and the Peoria LGBTQ community as that was the night Buddies on Adams closed.
