Better late than never, particularly when the cause is such a good one.

That was the feeling last week at Bryan Memorial Town Hall in Washington.

So it was that loaded ice buckets were everywhere and lots of town staffers did their part to extend the remarkable success of the ALS Association's "ice bucket challenge."

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that has afflicted many people throughout the world.

Thanks to the "challenge," more than $100 million had been donated internationally by last week to help ALS victims and attempt to find a cure.

According to Washington Town Cerk Sheila Anson, the "south wing of town hall challenged the north wing."

The end result was that numerous folks were soon chilly and wet, and checks were to be sent to the ALS Association.
