LAKE AREA –It was a balmy 36 degrees Sunday afternoon for the second annual Polar Plunge at the Buckeye Lake Winery. That seemed like a heat wave compared to last year’s freezing temperatures.
Ice was four – six inches thick around the knee-deep hole. Spectators out-numbered daredevils by 10-1.
Buckeye Lake Village Mayor Clay Carroll raised $100 for the Friends of the Buckeye Lake Library by accepting former council member Margaret Hanson’s challenge to dive into the still very icy water.
