17th Annual Polar Bear Dip.
The "dip" takes place Jan. 1 at 1 p.m. at the Auke Rec. Main Shelter. We will line up along the shore and at the sound of the horn, precisely at 1300 hours, all willing polar bears will take the plunge. Awards are given to every
dipper. Everyone is encouraged to bring hot drinks and leftover holiday cookies and candies they want to get rid of for the new year. Plenty of calories will be used up during the plunge. A bonfire
will be roaring - please bring an armload of wood if you have some. Everyone is welcome. Contact Len or Eva Ceder at 789-9195 for more info.
