EastBayRI.com: The Tiverton Yacht Club [RI] will sponsor its fourth annual Penguin Plunge at Grinnell’s Beach on Thursday, Jan. 1 [2015] at noon.

Since 2011, the club has been organizing this community-wide event to spread good cheer while raising funds to benefit the new library building targeted for opening in May or June of 2015. All are welcome to join fellow “penguins” who will gather on the beach in bathing suits under cover of warm clothing, wait for the signal, drop their outerwear, run into the frigid Sakonnet River for a quick plunge, and then sprint back to the beach to dry off.
