Okay..well you don't have to be a polar bear to participate, but you might feel like one after it's over! I'm referring to the annual "April Fools Dip" scheduled for March 30th at Reid State Park. Sponsored by the Coastal Humane Society, the event is held to raise money to help the more than 2,000 animals that are cared for annually by the Coastal Humane Society. Participants are invited to dip toes, ankles, knees, or whatever body part they choose into the frigid waters off Reid State Park. Feeling froggy? Then dive right in! Participants are asked to register either by phone (207) 725-5051 or visit www.coastalhumanesociety.org . Pledges are due the morning of the dip. Or , if you're the type who supports the Humane Society but shies away from frostbite (like yours truly) you can simply make a donation or sponsor a swimmer. Okay...odds are I wouldn't get frostbite..but being the big baby that I am I think I'll just sponsor someone braver than I am. Remember that families, animal lovers, cheering sections, and spectators are always welcome!
