Take The Plunge!

Category: Firm News — admin @ 10:22 am

On January 1, 2011 at approximately 2:00 p.m. Partner Ed Tobin, and Associate Attorney Dana Boniewski, braved the frigid waters of Lake George as participants in the 2011 Lake George Polar Plunge.   The water was just above freezing at a balmy 34 degrees but that didn’t stop Ed and Dana from running in, fully submerging – and then quickly running out! 

 Brrr – talk about starting the new year off “fresh”!  Happy 2011!

A cold day on the Beach!
