New Year's Day Polar Bear Dip!! A great way to start off the year and to help support Camp Sunshine - a year round retreat for children with life threatening illnesses and their families on Sebago Lake in Maine - this event is organized by the Coney Island Polar Bear Club - the oldest winter bathing organization in the US.
Please join Nancy and me and the original pole dippers on the boardwalk this New Year's Day for an unforgettable time, whether you take the plunge or not. If you can't make it but would like to donate to a wonderful cause, please feel free to do so. But if you can make it...caviar blinis and vodka after!! We're getting there by 10 or 11, they say be there by 12, and diptime is 1pm
fyi - if you join our team, the suggested donation is just $20 per swimmer (Nancy and i have covered this page's "amount we hope to raise") - and if your computer's acting up, and won't allow you to register, just show up - since it is free to all, just a suggested donation to help the camp.
