Participants turned out for the Polar Bear Plunge on Wednesday morning, an event that invites winter adventurers to brrrrr-ring in the New Year with an icy dip in Ranger’s Salacoa Lake. More than just a way to wake up after a holiday of overindulgence, the plunge raises money for the Coulter Hampton Foundation, an organization dedicated to raising funds for local children with serious illnesses and their families.
