Old Man Winter has done a number on the Annual Polar Plunge at Lutheran Island Camp. Ice and snow conditions require the Camp to cancel the Plunge for 2020. In its place, the First Annual Winter Bash has been scheduled for Saturday, March 7, 2020 for 2:00 to 3:00 in the afternoon.  Don’t forget to bring shoes for the Shoes for the Mission project.
