By Chris Hendrickson

For Sky Valley residents interested in ushering in the New Year with an icy dip in the waters of Lake Tye, the Monroe YMCA is hosting its fourth annual New Year’s Eve Polar Bear Plunge.

The event takes place 9 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 31 at Lake Tye Park in Monroe, kicking off with a 5K run/walk around Lake Tye. The plunge takes place at 10 a.m., and is followed by a gathering back at the Y with hot chocolate and other treats. It is suggested that participants bring a towel, warm clothes and a blanket.

The Monroe YMCA is located at 14033 Fryelands Blvd. in Monroe. Click here for more information about the Monroe Y.
