Several "Plunge" Icy Waters for a Good Cause


HOLDEN - Imagine jumping into a lake in February...well young and old did just that...all to raise money to send kids to two Maine camps this summer.
Those taking the plunge received pledges for donations, going toward Camp CaPella and Camp Sunshine...the annual event brings in thousands of dollars for each camp.
Most of those braving the icy temperatures of Phillips Lake was all for a good cause.  And after taking the quick's run like no other to the hot tub.  Unless...maybe, once wasn't enough for you.  But many will tell you, it was well worth the cold.
