One hundred jumpers for one hundred years

The Alfond Youth & Community Center (AYCC) held the annual Polar Plunge during the 100-year anniversary of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Waterville, on Saturday, March 16. More than 100 warm-hearted supporters took the plunge to support the AYCC Kids Kitchen.

Kennebec Savings Bank, Huhtamaki, Maine-ly Docks, Allen Insurance & Financial, and Day’s Jewelers sponsored the 31st annual event. This year’s icy plunge took place at the Oakland boat launch and raised over $43,000 for the AYCC Kids Kitchen.

Food & Nutrition staff provide more than 70,000 nutritious meals and snacks to kids in AYCC After School and Summer Enrichment Programs each year. This free program relies on support from generous sponsors and events like Polar Plunge to operate.

Jumpers included AYCC CEO, Ken Walsh; Waterville Chief of Police, Bill Bonney; Huhtamaki Plant Manager, Chris Perry; motorcyclists from Waterville Elks Lodge #905, American Legion Post #51, Oakland, and United Bikers of Maine; seasoned jumper, Tony Tuell; Boulerice Management CEO, Matthew Boulerice; and EXP Realtor, Nick Isgro.
