Saturday, January 1st, 12pm at Grinnell’s Beach
The Tiverton Yacht Club is sponsoring its 10th Annual Penguin Plunge at Grinnell’s Beach! “Penguins” will gather on the beach around 11:45am and take the plunge into the river at noon. As in previous years, the Penguin Plunge supports the Tiverton Public Library through donations from participants and from supporters who watch the event from the shore.
This year’s event could be the time to test (or re-test) your mettle with the help of cheering family, friends, and neighbors. All are welcome, and New Year’s hats, colorful holiday pajamas and (especially) good tidings are encouraged! Penguins are encouraged to obtain library donations in advance.
You can pick up your pledge form at the Library’s Information Desk, or click here to download the form. All pledge forms and donations should be brought to the beach at the time of the event.
Coastal Roasters of Tiverton will be at the beach with fresh hot coffee, locally roasted and always delicious. Unlike previous plunges, however, there will be no after-plunge celebration indoors.
