Freeze your little turkey tail off for a great cause! The 15th Annual Cold Turkey Plunge, to benefit the Weezie Library, is all ready for THURSDAY morning! This is truly fun for the whole family with costume contests, celebrity plungers, light bites, socializing and more! The PLUNGE benefits The Nantucket Atheneum, one of our most treasured buildings on Nantucket, with all funds raised at the Turkey Plunge to go back to the Weezie Library for Children! Weezie Library offers over 800 free programs and services each year and is a great space for kids to learn, and a fun place for them to play outside in their garden! So take the Plunge, and do it for the kids! They’ve already raised $80,000 of their $100,000 goal so be part of the Friendsgiving and give bACK to this worthy cause!

6. HOT APPAREL

SKI NANTUCKET
SKI NANTUCKET? Sure, the only real slope on the rock may be Alter Rock, but there’s still some ways to rock your love for the sport and your favorite island with the Nobby Shop! And where did this concept stem from? Nobby Shop owner Sam Limperis started joking with a salesman for a ski line and asked this salesman when his company was going to make some shirts about skiing on Nantucket. Much to Sam’s surprise, a short time later a box arrived with shirts advertising skiing on the island. Ever since then, their customers have gone crazy for the shirts and Ski Nantucket was born. For those looking for your own Ski Nantucket swag, they have mock turtleneck shirts made in the USA from 100% cotton. Get yours this season while shopping at their downtown store on 17 Main Street or shop the shirts online by clicking below!
