More than 100 people take Decatur Polar Plunge


More than 100 people picked the right time to make a splash into the new year! That’s because the temperature was close to 60 for this year’s Decatur Polar Plunge.

The annual shivering is all to raise money and awareness for the local Meals on Wheels program. The director of community services with the Community Action Partnership credits the warm weather for the great turn-out.

“This year was wonderful!” Cindy Anderson with the CAP. 

“It was cold!” said Katie Vick.

“It was awesome!” added Mae Vick.

“It takes your breath away but once you get out of the water you’re just so refreshed and just glad to be out of the water!” said Leah Harper.

“It was hard but after it, it was worth it,” said Elsa Harper.

“That was the reason we came,” said Gabriel Palacios about helping Meals on Wheels. “I like Meals on Wheels and what they serve.”
