2019 Polar Plunge

A huge shout out and thanks goes to the brave (some would say slightly crazy) team of Annie, John, Shay, Ryan, and Ben, who together raised over $1,000 for the TimeBank thru their courageous moment! You can still thank them for their moment of insanity by further donating to the cause. Just follow this link to donate to the polar plunger of your choice; https://wisconsin-winter-... [ more ]
