It's never too cold or never too much snow for volunteers to help others
Ripley County Sheriff Tom Grills carried the torch to open the third annual Versailles Polar Plunge on Saturday, February 13. One hundred and ten plungers, breaking the record of 57 set at last year's event, braved 20 degree air temperatures and 35 degree water temperatures to raise more than $20,000 that ensures athletes from Ripley, Ohio, and Dearborn counties can continue to participate in sporting events as well as the annual games in Indianapolis for Special Olympics. Dearborn County Water Rescue cut through six inches of ice at the Versailles State Park lake as well as standing by to ensure the safety of the plungers.
