Bass Lake Fire Department Hosts Charity Polar Bear Swim

Polar Bear PlungeMembers of the community are invited to take a final dip in Bass Lake Saturday and help a community agency in the process. Bass Lake Fire Chief Les Jensen says the department is hosting a polar bear swim at noon at Bass Lake Marina.

Participants can make a $10 donation to the Community Services of Starke County Food Pantry. Jensen says canned food donations will also be accepted. He says the water is only about four feet deep near the marina and is still about 50 degrees. Participants should keep that in mind as they dress for their Saturday plunge.
