Taking the (pre) plunge

Todd Williams takes the plunge face-first.
Family, friends, staff and vendors at Free Agents Marketing gathered Feb. 2 for a "pre-plunge" party to prepare for this weekend's Polar Plunge Winter Festival in Virginia Beach. A dozen or more "Freeze Agents" practiced for this Saturday's plunge by jumping into baby pools of icy water in the Free Agents Marketing parking lot, located off West Broad St. near Innsbrook.

The pre-plunge party, like the plunge itself, raised funds for Special Olympics Virginia, a Free Agents client. More than 10,000 people are expected at the festival to watch participants plunge into the Atlantic Ocean. For information about the plunge and how to donate, visit http://www.firstgiving.com/process/teamarea/default.aspdid=41733&teamid=166523.

Short Pump Rotary volunteers help with rebuild, repair


On June 13, the Short Pump Rotary Club partnered with Schnabel Engineering for a day of volunteer work with Rebuilding Together Richmond. Team members (among them [from left] Chris Rufe, Melissa Abraham, Rick Naschold, and Micky Ogburn) completed a variety of repairs and home improvements ranging from painting and landscaping to cabinet installation and fence building.

“It was a privilege to be involved in this project," said club president Melissa Abraham. "The homeowner kept thanking the volunteers, but I think all of us would agree we are the ones who actually benefited. It was an opportunity to help a community member, fellowship with great people and improve our handyman skills." > Read more.
