The annual Sweetheart Splash, put on by the Rotary Club of Rockford was held this past Saturday. While it was a relatively nice day for February in Michigan, it was still a mite chilly.

Luckily it wasn't cold enough to deter some brave souls from jumping into the river downtown at the dam, while plenty of others watched.

The Rotary Club uses this event every year to raise money for a local charity. They were also collecting donations of new and "gently used" blankets from the crowd.

The crowd looked a little bigger this year to me than last. As usual, there was a marriage proposal, and a fund raising event to get the celebrity MC to dive in. It was a fun event and the participants seemed to enjoy it, even though there were a couple of shocked looks on faces once they actually got in the water.
