Icy dip

With temperatures at minus-21 C (and feeling like minus-31 with the wind), Joanne and Kent Ogden raced out of the water yesterday during the Fort Frances Voyageurs Lions Club's annual “Polar Plunge." Twenty-seven people took the plunge into Sand Bay (behind La Place Rendez-Vous) and raised a total of $9,665 for seven different organizations. The first-place group raised $2,789.75 for "Friends of Animals,” helped by an individual fundraising effort of $1,150 by Andrea Turgeon.
