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.
