Polar Bear Club on Facebook

The Polar Bear Club sponsors several hugely successful events:

The 2021 Polar Bear Plunge is scheduled for Saturday, March 20th.

Note: Due to COVID restrictions, this year’s event is open only to officers, members and one representative from each school.

On March 20th, the officers and members of the Polar Bear Club will be holding our 16th Annual Polar Bear Plunge.  Please know it is the intention of this club to honor our long standing commitment to the Local Schools and their scholarships, charities we support. We respectfully ask for your help.

The event will be open only to the officers, members and one representative from each school due to the COVID restrictions on the use of the club house.  We will Facebook the event on Fans of Roaming Shores and live from Joeythepolarbear Facebook page.  Due to the state-wide ban on gatherings over 10 people, we ask that there are no spectators on site during the time of the event.

To assist us in our efforts, we are taking orders in advance for our annual plunge t-shirts and hoodies. T-shirts will sell for $15 and hoodies $30 each.

Order Form

Payment in advance is required at the time of order and the last day we can accept an order is Feb. 26th.  Please include sizes. Make checks payable to RSPBC and mail to 62 Rockaway Dr.  Roaming Shores, OH 44085.  Any individual who wishes to donate to this years’ plunge, please mail your check to this same address.  Questions, 330-507-4917.

Money raised will benefit the Jeffrey B. Meddock Memorial Scholarship at Pymatuning Valley Schools, Grand Valley Schools student programs in memory of Emily Plickert, Jefferson Area Local Schools Academic Boosters and the Roaming Shores Kids’ Breakfast with Santa event.

Interested in becoming a sponsor?


The 2021 Children’s Christmas with Santa will be held Saturday, December 11th, 2021 beginning at 9am. 

Due to the restrictions of the Clubhouse, we are unable to host our traditional breakfast.  Santa will  be here to share a gift and his Christmas Spirit with all the children and grandchildren of Roaming Shores residents, age 12 and under.  As we are unable to host the children in the Clubhouse, we ask each family drives to the front of the club house.  Santa will bring his Christmas gifts to your children as they remain in their vehicle.

Registration is required with a cutoff date of Friday, December 5th.   Please email the Polar Bear Club at:  joeythepolarbear@yahoo.com

When registering, please leave the following information:

  1. Family name
  2. Children’s name, age, and gender
  3. Preference of 9:00, 9:30, 10:00,10:30 reservation (due to the amount of children, Santa has asked we spread out the times so he has time to spend with the children)

The Polar Bear Club will send an email confirmation that you are registered within 48 hours of receiving.

We thank you and look forward to your family’s participation. Proceeds from the Plunge are donated to charities we sponsor:

The Jeff Medock Memorial Scholarship
Jefferson Area Schools Falcon Academic Boosters
“Breakfast with Santa” event for local children
Grand Valley Schools student programs in memory of Emily Plickert
