World's Largest Snowperson

In 2008 Bethel, Maine became the home of the world's tallest snowperson according to the Guinness World Records. The snowwoman was named in honor of Olympia Snowe, a U.S. Senator representing the state of Maine. Olympia measured 122 feet 1 inch in height and 13 million pounds of snow were used to build her. She was only a few feet shorter than the Statue of Liberty. Olympia weighed 13,000,000 pounds, had two 5-foot wreaths for eyes, had 16 snow skis for eyelashes, lips were made of 5 red car tires, chicken wire and painted cheesecloth made of the 8-foot long nose. Two 30-foot tall spruce trees were used for the arms, three 5-foot wide truck tires made up the buttons, her fleece hat was 48 feet wide, and 2,000 feet of rope used for her hair. Olympia also had a 130 foot scarf!


Work Hard And Go For The Savings Goal!

If you play sports or video games, or have hobbies like reading, writing or playing music, you understand the importance of goals. You have to work hard and stay focused to challenge yourself. It's no different when it comes to saving money. Learning the skills to save, having control of your money, and sticking with your game plan are all part of winning. These simple tips will help you reach your savings goal, every time:

  1. Save in your SeaComm Moola Moola account.
