The uninformed Allen Delaney of Prince Frederick wrote a letter to the editor published Jan. 9 in The Calvert Recorder [“Polar Bear Plunge should be free”]. In his letter, he refers to the “greedy hand of North Beach” charging people to participate in our annual Polar Bear Plunge.

Readers of The Recorder should know that “free participation” in the plunge has, and always will be, an option for everyone. Many “polar bears” plunged at no cost this year.

Those individuals who wished to support the local Boys & Girls Club with a donation did receive a commemorative long sleeve T-shirt and certificate of participation. The donations are greatly appreciated and will be put to good use.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s plunge.
