Ice on top of the water at Tuttle Creek State Park didn’t stop plungers Sunday. The annual Polar Plunge to support Special Olympics topped $10,000 just as teams began jumping into the frigid water. Junction City Police entered a team dressed as their main food group. Chief John Lamb explains.
Lamb says the event is enjoyable and a lot of fun, but there’s another reason for the freezin’.
RCPD’s new Director Brian Peete enjoyed his first day at the beach in his new hometown.
Members of his agency were dressed in costumes with a Rock ‘n Roll theme. After receiving a couple of awards, the team jumped into a section of water that the Geary County Sheriff’s Office had cleared of ice. Peete talks about their awards.
