The Polar Plunge Returns!

Next month, on Saturday, February 23, the Polar Plunge at Oakdale Lake returns for its second year. Last year, the event raised more than $10,000 for the Hudson Youth Department and Hudson Fire Department Water Rescue and Dive Team. This year's goal is $15,000.

If you're up for taking the plunge into the icy cold, invigorating water of Oakdale Lake, you can register as an individual or persuade your friends to join you and form a team. The entry fee is $25 a person. Once you've entered, you can get your family, friends, and co-workers to sponsor your plunge. All the information you need to become a plunger or to sponsor a plunger can be found by clicking here.

This year, something new has been added to the event: the Great Chili Cook-Off. The plungers start hitting the water at noon, and soon after the last brave soul scampers back out of the lake, the Great Chili Cook-Off begins at the Central Fire Station, 77 North Seventh Street. If you make chili that gets rave reviews, and you want to increase its fan base, consider providing a pot of it for the Great Chili Cook-Off. Information on doing so is also available here
