What’s up, Whitewater? (Freezefest 2/21)

I’ve mentioned a couple of web sites in the past for learning about events around Whitewater: Whitewaterbanner.com and the City of Whitewater web site. There are also web sites for the school district and the local public library.

But now a new site has appeared: MyWalworthCounty.com. It’s associated with Southern Lakes Newspapers, publisher of 21 area newspapers including the weekly Whitewater Register.

All three of these sites (Whitewater Banner, the City site, and the Walworth County site) have information on Freezefest taking place on Sat., Feb. 21st. Judging by what I saw last year, I recommend watching the polar plunge at noon at the Cravath Lakefront Park to see how many campus folks you may recognize (I’m especially looking forward to the “C&I/COE Polar Plunging Professors, et al.” team again). And hey, if you pledge to the plungers it goes to the worthy cause of Special Olympics Wisconsin. You can still see photos from last year’s plunge online (select Feb. 9, 2008 – Whitewater in the drop-down box by “Step One”).
