Piedmont Polar Plunge set for Jan. 4: Mayor Bill Baker reports that the first Piedmont Polar Plunge will be at 10 a.m. Jan. 4 at the aquatic center near the sports complex. Baker said it’s not just for Piedmont residents. Anyone can take a dip for a $10 donation, which will go to Venecia’s Foundation. Venecia Butler, a four-time cancer survivor, gives chemo bags for cancer patients who are going through treatment. More details will be in next week’s Journal.

• Dogs for the Deaf, located in Central Point, Ore., is a non-profit organization that rescues dogs from animal shelters and trains them to help adults and children with different disabilities, challenges, and needs. For example, a Hearing Dog is trained to alert its owner to household sounds that could affect his or her safety and an Autism Assistance Dog would keep an autistic child out of traffic, bodies of water, and other dangerous situations. Chris Hill, a resident of Anniston and a volunteer “ambassador” for Dogs for the Deaf, has a DVD presentation he will give to civic and community organizations or individuals.
