[February 04, 2010]  It is time to "plunge" into the new year! For individuals interested in taking the Polar Plunge into Lincoln Lakes on March 20, there will be a registration sign-up event at the Lincoln Knights of Columbus Hall, 217 Limit St., on Jan.14 from 7 to 9 p.m. The Law Enforcement Polar Plunge benefits the athletes of Special Olympics.

No money is required to register. The preliminary event will allow participants to sign up, get their packets and get into the spirit of the plunge. You can sign up as an individual plunger or sign up a team, regardless if you know who your team members will be.
