Thank you

I would like to thank everyone who participated in the polar bear swim at Kal Beach Jan. 1. A total of 112 people braved the cold winter dip.

Thank you to Sun FM and Vivacious Vicki. Thank you to Kal Tire and Tim Hortons for sponsoring the barbecue and hot drinks and Queen Silver Star Emily Pfannschmidt and Princess Antonya Crosby, and all who helped with the barbecue.

Thank you to all of our guest swimmers, Mr. Mitchell, Mayor Sawatzky, Darcy Sochan, Ed Huber, Robin Baycroft, Susie Bartell and Peter Dorey.

Thank you to Eric and Janice Foster for signalling the start.

Thank you to all of the local businesses that sponsored prizes.

A special thank you to Bobbi-Jo Gordon for her countless hours spent organizing and helping to make this event a huge success.
