Dear Biggby Friends,
I sincerely thank you for your generous donations for the Special Olympics.
The “Polar Plunge” took place as scheduled, Sat. February 21, hign noon, Otsego Lake State Park, it was a huge turnout both for spectators and participants, the Law Enforcement Agencies that organized the event were absolutely overwhelmed by the number of people who participated, as this was a first time event for Gayl.ord. It was reported that around 11,000 dollars was raised by this event.
It truly was a very exciting event to participate in. No where near what I was anticipating, I recommend to anyone considering such an event “GO FOR IT” !!!! It was tons of fun and the water was warmer than the air temperature. The worst part was waiting for my turn to take my plunge, as it was a snowstorm.
At our Facebook site, Biggby-Gaylord, I have posted pictures from the plunge and the Gaylord Herald Times website (gaylordheraldtimes.com) has a slide show of pictures from the event. If you access the pictures, I am the partcipant adorned with Biggby Barista attire!!! (not the bikini) I even jumped with a promo mug in my hand. Keepin it all BIGGBY!!!!! (cuz they were my sponsor J)
Again, thank you all so much for you enthusiastic response and enabling my quest in life to be as wild and crazy as I can be, while still keepin it legel!!!!!!
Much BIGGBY love,
Barista Lady Di
