A Message From Bob Goodwin

Greetings Fellow Penguin Supporters!! I can't wait to say good riddens to 2021. It's been a crazy year in every way. The one thing that hasn't changed is the support of Rhode Island Special Olympics. They need our help more than ever!! The Penguin Plunge provides for athletes from all over RI to compete in every season. If you ever saw the smiling face of an athlete after an event it's the greatest thing in the whole world. So give whatever you can. Cheers to 2022!! Bob Goodwin 2007 Penguin Excelsior
