Kick off 2018 with a snowman, a smiley, and caching friends!

It's the third annual Do You Wanna Build a Snowman event!

Two years ago we got together to make Olaf a Happy snowman. The snow wasn't the best snow for making a snowman, so only one snowman was built. But we did have a fantastic response to the Siloam Mission donation. We did it again last year and included Skating, Sledding and a nice warm Shelter.
