Polar Bear Plunge

Members of the Williamsport Polar Bear Club and the Board of Directors and staff at the Humane Society of Washington County are inviting everyone to become official Williamsport Polar Bears by taking the chilly plunge into the Potomac River on Jan. 1 at noon. The event takes place at the Williamsport boat ramp and all proceeds benefit the Humane Society of Washington County.

Original WPB club member Todd Bowman is looking forward to another great gathering of the hearty Williamsport Polar Bears. "We're really anxious to see a big crowd out there this year," said Bowman adding, "For the past three or four years its been real mild so we are due for a cold one. So it would separate out the men from the boys."


Prizes for the two people who obtain the greatest amount of pledges are being donated by several businesses in the area. Fresh-brewed donated hot coffee and delicious baked cookies will be served during the event.
