Last weekend of February! Spring here we come! Soon we will be planning trips to the park and splashing in Lake Ontario! Some people just can’t wait to splash in the water- the contestants for the 23rd Annual Polar Bear Dip to benefit the River Hospital! Saturday February 23rd, 2013, dipping starts at 1:00pm at Bonnie Castle Resort in Alex Bay! Click here for more details!
I also want to highlight several area benefits this weekend:
- First Annual Maddie’s Mark Carnival, Sunday 2/24/13 11am-4pm at the Northside Improvement League in Watertown. Face painting, a clown, a magician, games, food, raffles- oh my! $ 2.00 per person or $10.00 per family admission. If you are going to do anything this weekend, I strongly suggest this carnival.

**New this week: Fun idea at home! Starting this week I will also feature a fun idea or craft to do at home! Nothing says thrifty like staying at home and having fun! Like I said, spring is coming! Bundle up and get outside and enjoy the snow before it’s gone! Build a snowman, have a snowball fight, make snow angels!
