Polar Peeps Plunge-in-Place!
At the 2020 Annual Delegates Meeting, Region 5 was once again awarded the President’s Polar Cap Award for raising the most funds out of each CSEA Region to benefit the New York Special Olympics.
This year we will not be plunging together at big events, but we still plan to support the NYSO the best that we can by plunging in place! Here is a flyer to print out or send to your fellow members!
