SINCLAIR, Maine — The Aroostook County Knights of Columbus are organizing a Polar Dip for Special Olympics to be held at 2 p.m.Sunday, March 25, at the Sporting Club Restaurant. Registration will be from noon to 2 p.m. the day of the event.  This is to be the first of what is hoped will be an annual event. Proceeds will benefit the Aroostook County Chapter of the Special Olympics of Maine. Participation is open to all individuals and organizations. Participation paperwork will be available for download from www.aroostookknights.org on Feb. 1, 2012.
This is a worthy cause in line with the organizing principles of the Knights of Columbus. “Knowing that a bit of displeasure will bring a smile to a Special Olympic Athlete makes it all worthwhile!” says Duane Belanger, moderator of the Aroostook County Knights of Columbus.
Participants who raise at least $50.00 will be eligible for a special T-shirt commemorating their involvement as a dipper. For more information, call 951-2974 or visit www.aroostookknights.org.
