The sixth annual Polar Plunge was a fundraiser for the Central Klickitat Park and Recreation District swimming pool. Director Lori Anderson said some folks found a different way to contribute this year.

Director Lori Anderson said the event raised $1,800 for the Goldendale Pool, and featured four more plungers than last year.
