Some hearty Sunrise club members braved the bone chilling water in Lake Coeur d'Alene on January first and were rewarded with a much warmer dunk in Denny's hot tub and a potluck of soup and chili.  Donations totaled $216 and will be sent to The Rotary Foundation's Annual Programs Fund.  Congrats to the plungers and a big thanks to Denny for hosting the event.
     Our Rotary Youth Exchange Student from Chile, Carolina Jara Ribet, also participated in the Polar Bear Plunge at Sanders Beach!  Big thank you to her host parents, Tom and Jennifer Smart, for taking her to the community event and supporting her desire to plunge!  The temperature in Carolina's home town of Santiago, Chile, on January first was 83F!
