The third annual Polar Bear Plunge is scheduled for Friday, December 31 at noon at the East End Beach here on the Hill. The bone-chilling dip is a fund-raiser to help the Natrual Resources Council of Maine fight global warming.
About 40 people are signed up to take the plunge to help fight global warming. Brownie Carson, director of the NRCM, dipped for the first time last year and plans to take his last dip this year as the non-profit’s executive director. He has announced his retirement.
To participate, please contact Stacy at (207) 430-0127. NRCM asks that plungers raise at least $50 in pledges. Anyone can pledge to encourage the plunger of his or her choice by using the online pledge forms at http://supporters.nrcm.org/polarplunge.
The two top fundraisers will receive $50 gift certificates to LL Bean, while additional top fundraisers will receive commemorative NRCM tote bags or caps.
