Penguin Plunge 2011

1/1/11 was the 14th Annual Penguin Plunge at City Island in Harrisburg Pennsylvania. Luckily for the loonies plungers the temperature warmed up a little. I say warmed up a little, it was a little but it didn't do much for the water temperature.

All donations from the Plunge goes to the Humane Society of Harrisburg Area. Lynn has without fail jumped into the river on New Years Day since it's inception. She was on the Humane Society board when they came up with the fund raising idea 14 years ago.

A new idea this year is for those too chicken to take the plunge. They get to stand in constume in the "Chicken Coop".  Lisa, Bonnie  and Fred joined them for a photo.
