Baldwinsville has a jam packed weekend planned January 28-29th. It is the annual Big Chill Weekend! There are a number of events happening including the polar bear plunge. This year I have made the commitment to take part in the ploar bear plunge. As you see from the banner on the side of my blog I am looking for donations. I have approached the good people of St. Mark’s and some of them told me I should be collecting money to NOT participate in the event. Who in their right mind is willing to jump into the Senica River in the middle of winter? I AM!
The money will be going to a good cause as well. All proceeds will benefit The Ronald McDonald House Charities of CNY, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and the Baldwinsville Chamber of Commerce.
Schedule of events on Saturday Janurary 29th are as follows
