For the twelve year, Brunswick Area Rec Council will be sponsoring the Scottish First Footing on December 31, 2014 at 11:45 PM at the Square Corner Park, 1 Potomac Street, Brunswick, MD. The Frederick Drum & Pipes will be performing several selections and at midnight they will play Auld Lang Syne.
The Scottish First Footing or Hogmanay (a Scottish word for the last day of the year) is a tradition that says if the first person to cross your threshold on New Year’s Eve is a tall dark haired man, it will bring good luck to the household. A man or woman with blond or red hair is considered bad luck. The man brings a bottle of drink (Scotch in the old days) to ensure you have plenty to drink, a cake so you have plenty to eat, and a lump of coal. Coal is one of the most popular gifts because it represents warmth for the home, plenty of cooking fuel, and a symbol of luck that soldiers often carried into battles.
Brunswick Area Rec Council is a division of the Frederick County Parks and Recreation Council. BARC meets on the first Monday of the month at the Brunswick High School Library at 7:00 PM. Volunteering and providing recreation for the Brunswick area is always fun and those interested in becoming involved in the community are welcome to attend our meetings. For more information, find us on Facebook at Brunswick Area Rec Council, at barcmd.com, or call Bob Ward (301-834-8215), or Lee Zumbach (301-834-8045).
Why would anyone jump into freezing cold Potomac River water on New Years Day? The answer is simple: To HELP OTHERS. On January 1st, 2015, brave people will again take on the challenge of plunging into water that if they are lucky, will be more than warmer than last year. The Freezin For a Reason Plunge money will help local charities that have a very serious need this time of year.
As the participants gathered on the boat ramp for pre-jump pictures, it is a party atmosphere with all wishing each other Good Luck and Happy New Year. Many of the participants wear fun costumes like Cutter Hadley most outrageous costume last year dressed as a 6 foot 4 inch King Neptune!
Funds pledged to these brave people will be used to help the Brunswick Food Bank, Beacon Emergency Relief Fund, or Frederick County Special Olympics.
BARC would like to express its thanks to the Brunswick Ambulance Crew who help make our event safe and to the City of Brunswick for allowing us to use the campground. A special thanks to all who contributed in support of those who entered the river. Many are going through some difficult times during this winter and the funds raised will help the food bank, the emergency relief fund, and people with special needs. You can still donate to this cause by contacting a person listed in the article or call 301-834-8045 and set up a contribution. No matter how bad times may feel for you, remember there are many in much worse shape who need help with their families and children.
For the first time this year, we are offering the opportunity for the community to make donations online via PayPal. Please click on the link below to donate to Freezin’ for a Reason. We would appreciate you entering which charity you would like your donation to benefit. These are the charities that Freezin’ for a Reason will be supporting this year:

What better way to show your Brunswick pride than a biathlon! Run the hills of Brunswick and swim a few laps in the pool! You can pretend the pool is the Potomac if you want. This is the 5th year that BARC has hosted the Heart of the Potomac Valley Biathlon and we encourage everyone to come to this great event.
Challenge yourself with laps in the Brunswick Pool then run on the Brunswick High School Cross Country track.
We hope to see you there!
