No Hibernation for Polar Bear Swimmers ... dip in Rushbrook goes January 1 at 1PM

Prince Rupert's Rotarians will once again be welcoming in the new year with a dip in the Harbour, the Annual Polar Bear Swim set for 1 PM on Monday, January 1st 2024.

Your opportunity to wander down the Rushbrook Boat Launch to celebrate the start of a new year, with Coffee, Hot Chocolate and a Hot Dog awaiting you return from the chilly Harbour temps of the first day of 2024.

This years dip perhaps not quite as cold as years past with the New Year's Day forecast calling for Periods of Rain and a High temperature of 5 degrees by dip time.

Rotarians note that costumes are encouraged and in past years have made for quite the parade of participants into the water.

The Annual New Year's Day dip, just one of a number of community events sponsored by Rotary and assisted through local fundraising through the years.
