Springville Mayor Wilford Clyde responded big to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge at the Springville Civic Center on August 22nd. Staying true to his motto to ‘Give a Full Measure’, Mayor Clyde recruited his friends at Clyde Companies and the Springville City Fire Department to fill a W.W. Clyde & Co loader full of ice-water for the event – and you’d better believe it made a big splash. Twice.
After a slight miss on the first dump, Mayor Clyde had the bucket refilled and 15 people, including city officials, administrators and Springville residents joined him in the challenge.
“It’s a great reason to get wet,” Clyde said. “I have good friends who have been impacted personally by ALS and this is a neat opportunity to get the community involved.”
While completing the challenge, the Mayor extended a promise that Clyde Companies would donate $100 per person to alsa.org for those he challenged who completed the challenge by Monday August 25th, as well as those 15 who joined him that day.
The Mayor called out the city council, directors of city departments, city administration, the senior leadership team of Clyde Companies and his sonsin-law and three oldest grandsons to complete the challenge.
