13 year old Justina Moore (AKA Super Woman) raised the most funds as an individual plunger at the recent BEL Rotary Polar Plunge.  The event raised close to 35,000 to support various charities and work of BEL Rotary.  A heart felt thank you to our volunteers, sponsors and of course the plungers who made this event so successful!

On Sunday February 4th, 73 intrepid plungers plunged into the frigid waters of Chemong Lake and raised more than $32,000 to support local charities and the work of the Rotary Club of Bridgenorth –Ennismore- Lakefield.  “The plunge went off like clockwork thanks to the tremendous work of the volunteers and community supporters” said Co-Chairperson Tony Davidson. “It is truly a community event and it is the effort of everyone concerned that makes it such a success.  In the end, it is the charities and the work of BEL Rotary that are the true benefactors.”

Over the years hundreds of plungers have jumped for many reasons, most of them personal.  First time plunger Lennie Lifchus supported the Kawartha Rotary Club Warming Room Initiative, which provides those living in poverty shelter and a hot meal on cold winter nights.  “We have so much good fortune in our country”, said Lifchus, “It is hard to believe there are those who call the street home”.

The Rotary Club of Bridgenorth - Ennismore - Lakefield wishes to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers, community supporters and of course the “Polar Plungers” who braved the weather and the water on Feb 4th to make this event a success.
