Since the Polar Plunge at Grey Dam on 21 June, kind citizens of Grahamstown have been delivering blankets and warm clothes at PG Glass for us to distribute to needy families who are struggling to keep warm.
…and it is done! “Into the light” is what they yelled as they entered the icy water to swim a length in Grey Dam at 7am this morning – those brave/mad people who welcomed the Winter Solstice at the Polar Plunge!
Tomorrow will mark the Winter Solstice – the shortest day of the year and the longest night. After that, we are to believe that summer will gradually make its way back – warmer weather ?, longer days.
When I enquired how your Polar Plunge training was going last week, local resident and Rotarian Luc Marechal took me seriously and popped off for a quick training plunge!
Just checking….how’s your training going for the Polar Plunge on 21 June?
Right – so to all those who find it ‘refreshing’ to take a plunge into Grey Dam to celebrate the Winter Solstice on 21 June, the POLAR PLUNGE is on!!!
