A big crowd was on hand to cheer on the Polar Bear dippers at Clearwater Lake in Industry.

The Farmington area Polar Bears celebrated Chester Greenwood Day with a jump in the cold, cold Clearwater Lake at Allen’s Mills in Industry. More than a dozen brave swimmers dove in and quickly exited the 30-degree water to find air temperatures in the mid 20s. A large, appreciative audience were on hand to cheer the polar bears on.
