MN Polar Plunge Benefiting The Special Olympics

THANKS to everyone that supported our team, The Ice Angels, for the 2012 Polar Plunge in Alexandria.  Holly, Erika, and I were so nervous, but in the end it wasn't as bad as we thought it was going to be.  In fact, it was so much fun that we decided we will be doing it again next year.  We ended up raising $490 for The Special Olympics with the help of donations from Common Threads and our customers.  I promised pictures of the event, so here you go...

The Polar Plunge Polar Bear was there to cheer us all on.

At this point we were scared.
