  Pioneer Memorial Hospital & Health Services Annual Polar Plunge will be held the following date:

Saturday, April 16th, 2016

This is Southeastern South Dakota’s Polar Bear Club Swan Lake Plunge, which has become one of SE South Dakota’s most exciting and chilling fundraising events.  However, this event can only be successful with the help of the public.  We need your help!  There are many ways to become involved with the Plunge this year and years to come.  There are opportunities for sponsoring, volunteering, and of course plunging!  All proceeds from the event will benefit the Pioneer Memorial Nursing Home.  The highest fundraisers will receive a trophy and prizes.

Plungers can also win a trophy and prizes.  Ever seen the Incredible Hulk and Captain America run into a cold icy lake in February?  Or Sonny and Cher? SpongeBob and Patrick going for a swim in icy water?  Who knows what you will see, all we know is that the zaniest costume can win so this is your chance to volunteer to plunge and dress in your favorite costume.

Great food will also be provided in the “Chilly Chili” food booth at the main building at Swan Lake Christian Camp, just follow the signs.  There you can warm up with a steamy bowl of chicken noodle soup or tavern.  Grab a cup of hot chocolate, coffee, or enjoy a snack!

Don’t wait, if you would like to register or want more info, volunteers can contact Brendyn Richards at 605-326-5161 Ext. 3088 or contact him by email at
