Atlantic City

Group needs new meeting spot

Princess Inc., the Pleasantville and Atlantic City-based organization that serves young women by promoting healthy self-esteem, is looking for a new meeting spot.

The group lost its meeting space at the Atlantic City Police Athletic League building after Hurricane Sandy. The group typically meets from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Thursdays and needs a place that would allow food. Its first meeting is scheduled for Jan. 10.

Spaces are available for new member enrollment for girls ages 13-22. Applicants must pay a registration fee of $35 and have a GPA of at least 2.5. To enroll, call 609-287-4235 or 609-892-9544.

Annual Polar Bear Plunge

scheduled for Jan. 1

The annual Brigantine Polar Bear Plunge will take place at 11 a.m. Jan. 1 at the 14th Street Beach.

The 2013 goal is $60,000.

The event kicks off with live music, refreshments, color guard and official merchandise for sale. Participants in the plunge are encouraged to wear costumes with prizes awarded to the best costumes. The swim is set for noon followed by a post-plunge party at the Laguna Grill,1400 Ocean Ave. which will feature special food and drink pricing for the event. The Mott's Creek Pickers will provide live entertainment.
