Hats off

Thanks for taking the plunge

Anyone who ventured outdoors during the last few days knows what a shock the frigid air can be, even when clad in arctic wear.

Imagine how jarring it would be to leap into an ice-covered pond wearing just a swimsuit. We tip a cap this week to the 179 people who participated in the Polar Bear Jump last Saturday at Camden Falls Reception & Conference Center.

Since the annual icy dips began, the human icicles have raised about $100,000 for Financial Assistance for Cancer Treatment. Thanks!
