Cold Water Challenge Issued to Help Local Organization


The cold water challenge in Starke County is going down to a deeper level.

Bass Lake Fire Chief Les Jensen called out several folks to be part of a cold water challenge on Nov. 1 where a dip into the cold waters of Bass Lake will help benefit the Community Services of Starke County Food Pantry.

“I called out all of the members of every Starke County Fire Department, EMS staff, the sheriff’s department staff, and the staff at WKVI. Anyone else that’s willing to join in on the fun is welcome,” said Jensen.

Participants can show up at noon at the Bass Lake Marina on Nov. 1, donate $10 and take the plunge to help those in need in the county.
