Polar Plunge set for Mayville Saturday

MAYVILLE — Family Health Medical Services has announced its sixth Annual Polar Plunge. The event is being held Saturday at the Presidents Day Winter Festival in Mayville. Registration begins at 10:30 a.m.; the plunge will start at noon following a cold water rescue demonstration scheduled for 11:30.
