It was a snowy 31 degrees Saturday morning at the Glasgow National Guard Armory when a record number of participants gathered to jump into the chilling waters to raise money for Junior Achievement.

Money’s being raised to help continue the efforts of the organization were raised by a number of groups and individuals who braved the cold.  Even though it was already 31 degrees, workers added bags of ice just before jump time to make sure the water remained cold.  Awards were given out to Employees of the Barren County Jail who raised the most money, had the most number of plungers and who had the ‘grand penguin’, oldest plunger in Lloyd Bean.  Annette Ramsey of Citizens First Bank won the costume contest, Wes Mouser of U.S. Bank raised the most money as an individual and East Barren Fire Department won the People’s Choice award.
