The water at the pond at Valley Falls Park is getting nice and cold.
Just in time for the annual Arctic Splash.
So get the costumes ready - at least the swim suit - and get ready to sprint into the water for a good dunk.
For good causes.
The Vernon Parks and Recreation Department sponsors the Arctic Splash to raise funds for the Send-A-Kid to Camp program and the Hockanum Valley Community Council. This year's version is scheduled for Dec. 8 at 1
p.m. at Valley Falls Park.
There is a $10 minimum donation to participate.
T-shirts will be provided to those who pre-register and raise $10 or more.
Awards will be handed out for the participant who raises the most money and best costume.
A bon fire will be provided to warm up after the plunge - weather permitting - and refreshments will be served.
For questions, e-mail the Vernon Parks and Recreation Department.
