Winterfest Polar Dip 2014

Sylvan Lake Winterfest Polar Dip.

Many thanks to our staff member Corrie Brown, and Library volunteer Frank Webb who volunteered to plunge into a dunk tank for Sylvan Lake Winterfest's annual polar dip on Saturday, February 15. Corrie and Frank chose the Sylvan Lake Municipal Library as their Not-for-Profit Charitable Group of choice for the second year in a row.

Together they raised almost $900. All of the pledges collected will help support Library programs.

Special thanks to Heather Parker for her creative talents. Heather transformed Corrie and Frank into the Cats in the Hats.
