Aid for NB Flood Victims/ Polar Bear Swims/ On the Phone-in: Adventures!

Aid for NB Flood Victims: Kathy Rogers told us how flood victims in Charlotte County, NB, have been left out to dry by insurance agencies.  More than 150 people find themselves homeless, their homes unsalvageable and without insurance (since the flood has been deemed an act of God by their insurance agencies).  So Rogers decided to do something about it.  Now, as the chairperson of the Charlotte County Disaster Relief Fund, she 's already helped raise more than $25,000 for flood victims.

If you want to donate money to the Charlotte County Disaster Relief Fund email: krsw@nb.sympatico.ca.  You can also donate at your local Red Cross office.

Polar Bear Swims:  We also heard two courageous souls, Jason Lee and Stephen Swimmer, share their annual New Year's tradition - braving the icy cold blue for a quick dip.  If you're interested in taking the plunge in Charlotettown, just show up on Saturday at 10:30, near the Charlottetown Yacht Club.  For more info you can check out the PEI Polar Bear Club Group on Facebook.  If you're near Yarmouth, and feel like jumping into Lake Milo, call Stephen Swimmer at 902.742.5697.

Adventures:  On the phone-in, Kristin Roe, the first Nova Scotian to swim the English Channel, and David Hood, who last fall hiked the Himalayas, shared their 2010 achievements and you told us about your big adventures this year.
