Taking the plunge
Rockland — A number of Oceanside High School East students braved frigid temperatures Sunday, March 2 for a dip in the harbor off Snow Marine Park.
The event was organized to raise money for the school's annual Project Graduation.
Students gathered at the park off Mechanic Street at about 11:30 a.m. At noon, they ran into the ocean, splashed around briefly and hurried back out, to the cheers and applause of teachers, parents and friends.
A Rockland ambulance was on hand for the event.
