Special Presentation 

This month we are honored to have Tom McGann, the President of the Coney Island Polar Bears Club USA, speak to us on the history of the Polar Bear Club and its current activities.  


The Coney Island Polar Bear Club is the oldest winter bathing organization in the United States.  They swim in the Atlantic Ocean at Coney Island every Sunday from October through April.  


The Coney Island Polar Bear Club is also active in providing support to Camp Sunshine, a family retreat for children with life-threating illnesses.

It looks to be an interesting evening.  We hope you can join us.
