The YMCA of Beaufort County hosts its first Puppy Plunge of the season on Saturday, Oct. 3 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon at the Y outdoor pool in Port Royal. Well behaved pups that are “fixed” and up to date on their vaccinations are welcome to join in the fun and the cost is $5 per pup with a signed waiver. Proceeds benefit the Y’s Learn to Swim Program teaching our Beaufort-area youth to swim. Weather permitting, Puppy Plunge will be the first Saturday of every month through March 2016. The YMCA is located at 1801 Richmond Ave. in Port Royal. For more info call 843-522-9622 or ymcabeaufortcounty.com.
