ABLE team plunges in for Polar Plunge
Staff and people supported of ABLE participated again this year in the Polar Plunge to raise money for Special Olympics.
The team, called ABLE and Ready, raised more than $1,200 in donations during the event, held March 2 at Pettibone Park.
The team captain was Kandice Larson, who did a wonderful job along with Tiffany Entringer in coordinating this activity on behalf of ABLE.
Special thanks also goes to everyone on the team who solicited for donations and to those souls brave enough to plunge into the frigid Mississippi.
