34th jumping of the Polar Plunge

The temperatures are dropping, the snow is falling and the Rotary Club of Bridgenorth Ennismore Lakefield is busy preparing for the 34th “jumping of the polar plunge”.

This is the opportunity for community members to raise money for the cause or charity of your choice. Sixty per cent of the monies raised goes to the jumper’s chosen charity and 40 per cent goes to BEL Rotary to support its local and international service projects.

Registration and pledge forms are on the BEL website: There is also the option for jumpers to gather donations on line, on the same website.

The “Freezin for a Reason” event happens on Sunday, Feb. 2 at 2:00 p.m. sharp in Rotary Park, Ennismore.

In honour of our Canadian Olympians who are heading to Sochi, Russia to represent our country, the theme is the “Winter Olympic Games”.

Plungers can compete for prizes including best costume and most money raised. It is Christmas, the season of giving and the perfect time to ask your colleagues and friends for their generous support.

For more information, go to and click on the right hand side to obtain a pledge sheet, see the rules and to find out how to generate an on-line account, or contact Tony Davidson, this year’s Plunge Chair at 705-743-4244 or by e-mail:
