Waterville Valley, NH—Cold water, a jolly old elf and a good cause? On Saturday, Nov. 24, the good times at Waterville Valley start at 1 p.m. as Captain Tom Turkey will lead his fearless fowl feathered friends as they plunge into the icy waters of Corcoran Pond adjacent to the Town Square to raise funds for the Waterville Valley Adaptive Sports Program.
Plungers are asked to raise a minimum of $50 in donations. All proceeds raised will be used to purchase specialized adaptive athletic equipment and provide ski and snowboard lessons for children and adults with cognitive and physical disabilities.
Participants will be rewarded with an official Cold Turkey Plunge shirt, a gourmet turkey sandwich courtesy of Chef Sean Stout of the Coyote Grill, and assorted prizes in a variety of categories.

At 3:30 p.m., Santa Claus will arrive at the Town Square bearing gifts and candy for each child who comes to see him. Parents are welcome to take photos of their children with Santa. Hot cocoa and cookies will be provided. A suggested donation, from those who are able, of $5 per child/$10 per family will be gratefully accepted and all proceeds will be donated to the Whole Village Family Resource Center in Plymouth, NH.
Enjoy dinner and shopping at Town Square’s eclectic shops and stay for the annual tree lighting ceremony at 7 p.m. followed by holiday fireworks over Corcoran Pond.
