7 of the brave Bijou girls are for the third time jumping into the Skaneateles frigid lake. Every year, they dress up..this year will not disappoint! Can you imagine 7 loofah body scrubs bouncing in the lake? Oh yes, daring, these girls are! Constructing their costumes out of colored tulle! BUT only if they get to at least $1000! It’s all about the trophy…we had it the first year..then we lost it…They want to reclaim it! Will you help and donate, check out our rewards just for you!

Please join us for this great fundraiser, which will provide needed funds for the Skaneateles Education Foundation, SAVES (Skaneateles Ambulance Volunteer Emergency Services) and the Skaneateles Fire Department.

I want to go to Hawaii, and I’d like you to join me.

I want to go to Hawaii, and I’d like you to join me.

Dear Skaneateles:

I want to go to Hawaii, and I’d like you to join me.

I’ve been participating in an online contest called THE CUTEST DOG COMPETITION, and I’m writing to ask for your help.

The competition is a series of 12 consecutive internet elections. The 12 winners compete in a semi final round, and the grand prize winner will be awarded $1,000,000.

The pups I’ve been voting for daily, “Huckleberry and Doodle” are from Central New York, and for the past 3 elections, they have placed in the top 30 for 3 consecutive weeks, last week #7, out of over 50,000 other canine contestants.

The owner of the dogs, George Rossi, has publicly declared that if we win this thing, he will sell the annuity and spend every last dime on throwing a victory party for the top voters and recruiters of their candidacy…on the Island of Hawaii.

Ridiculous you say? Nuts? Crazy? Impossible? Those who know George personally also know that he’s am wholly capable of blowing a million dollars on his friends and walking away with nothing but a memory. It’s never been about the money for him…but to blow a million bucks in a legendary Elvis- like, one fell swoop of generosity?

He’s all about going down in a ball of flaming infamy; In fact, it’s what he’s known best for!

I know this sounds silly. It is! But we’ve all been having so much fun joining in on this internet highwire-without-a-net act, I wanted to personally invite you to the party.

Please visit www.huckanddoo.com. This site will walk you through the voting process, with tips on how to get proactive, links to photos and blogs, and a guest book to share this experience together, as a community. Trust me, it’s a real hoot once you get into the swing of things.

Best, Huck and Doo
