SHELTON - Staff and residents at Wesley Village gathered together last week to proudly participate in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, throwing buckets of cold, icy water on team members to raise money for a worthy cause.
Beginning the challenge Aug. 19 were staff members from Bishop Wicke Health and Rehabilitation Center, who then nominated UMH President and CEO Dave Lawlor and Wesley Village Vice President of Operations, Pete Belval, who were both soaked along with other staff within the next 24 hours.
