Chillin’ for Charity

A shout out to all the brave souls who took part in any of the various “polar bear dip” events on

January 1st to help raise funds for charitable causes. Not my own personal cup of iced tea, but an admirable feat nonetheless. From nearby Oakville’s big event to the smaller inaugural dip held this year to support the Community Child Abuse Council, these are social occasions as well as fundraising ventures. Costumes, props, and a beach full of supportive onlookers add to the festive atmosphere. A tip of the toque to all the volunteers, sponsors, participants, cheerleaders, and hot cocoa providers who make these chilly events happen. It takes a very warm heart to do such good from an icy dip in the lake. Happy New Year to all.
