  • Wear Water Shoes
  • Don’t Undress Too Soon…….you will be colder……
  • Have some land lover hold your stuff while you are in the water
  • Know where your towel, robe and warm clothes will be after the Plunge
  • Don’t wear your eyeglasses in the water….they won’t be on your head when you come out of the water
  • Party At The AOH in Middletown after the Plunge.   Palmer Ave. and Hwy 36 in Middletown. Look for the Irish Flag!!!
