Team 350 Loudoun participated in the Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN) 11th Annual Polar Bear Plunge on Saturday, January 30th.  It was a icey morning with air temperatures in the 30s but that didn’t deter the plungers from demonstrating their determination to have their voices heard about the realities of climate change and the need to move to alternative energy sources immediately.
