On Feb. 18, Plant Engineering Manager Sal Geraci did what he’s done for 13 consecutive years – raise money for the Special Olympics of Illinois program. To do so, he jumped into icy Twin Lakes in nearby Palatine a week after the local area received in excess of a foot of snow, followed by bone-chilling temperatures. Modagrafics again supported Sal’s efforts for the 2018 Special Olympics Polar Plunge.
