Iced Water Makes for Challenging Situation

These people who all work at Buckin’ Good Welding in Provost found out how refreshing an ice-cube infested bucket of cold water—measured as 4 degree Celsius—feels on a warm summer day as Wacey Manning was at the controls and dumped this load onto them. The Ice Bucket Challenge event was held to help raise money and awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)—also known as motor neurone disease. As part of the event, one of the staff first read a message aloud stating that they support the cause by donating $500 and in turn were challenging local business operations MRC Midfield, the Buckin’ Good Welding sub-contractors, Withers and staff and sub-contractors as well as Maverick Oilfield Services. Taking the noon hour bath were,from left: Gabe Paulgaard, Ian Bali, Jerry Lakevold, Stephanie Froland and Destiny Meyer. ©Provost News Photo.
