Despite spotty rain and a tornado watch in the area, plungers turned out for the Fourth Annual Lake Martin Young Professionals Polar Plunge Jan. 19 to raise money for the Lake Martin Resource Association. Proceeds from the event, which was held at Kowaliga Restaurant, will benefit the “Light Up Lake Martin” buoy program.
