Swim takes stand against winter

Staff at Swim Creative took a symbolic stand against winter Friday morning by wearing shorts and passing out free ARCO Coffee.

Swim Creative, the Duluth-based branding and advertising studio, observed the 5th annual Shorts Against Winter event by passing out free ARCO Coffee and prizes Friday morning outside of its downtown office.

Shorts Against Winter was launched by Swim and urges participants to wear shorts to take a stand against winter. The weather didn't exactly cooperate, dropping a couple inches of snow on the ground before morning.
