On New Year’s Day, a hardy band of District 7190 Rotarians participated in the annual “Polar Plunge” at Shepard Park in Lake George.

The go-jump-in-the-lake event in frigid waters is a major fundraiser for Rotary’s anti-polio efforts.

To warm up afterward, they joined other Rotarians in the annual “Bowl Over Polio” event.

Says District Governor John Mucha, “We’re hoping to exceed $10,000 with pledges and donations, and with the [Bill & Melinda] Gates [Foundation] match, that’s $30,000 to fight polio. ”
