Cold temperatures and icy waters has once again brought us the annual Polar Bear Plunge and this year several of our Cockeysville neighbors joined in the fun. First, the brave boys of Boy Scout Troop 328 — Luke Anderson, Davey Huber, Price Marlow and Kaden Nelson — who were joined by Assistant Scout Master Brian Nelson and Committee Chairperson Trit Farley, took the plunge and raised nearly $750 for the Maryland Special Olympics. These mostly-first timers braved the 37¿ water temperature for a chilly dip in the bay. The boys had decided that the plunge would be a fun experience and a great way to give back to the community. They had such a good time that they plan to be back next year, hopefully with more of their fellow scouts in tow.

Members of Ravens Roost #100 also took part in the plunge. The group, which normally meets at The Greene Turtle, in Hunt Valley, to cheer on the Ravens, traveled to Sandy Point State Park for the event and raised more than $8,000. According to Barb Duvall, who was one of the sixteen members of the roost to take part this year, the group has raised up to $20,000 each year over the past eight years. A love for the Ravens brought this group of forty members together but another big part of their roost is supporting the community. They undertake several service projects each year while having lots of fun along the way.
