Tammy Saltzman of Goodspring and her fiance James Lemmon were finally able to take the plunge into the Pine Creek for the 8th Annual Pine Creek Polar Bear Plunge, held Sunday, Jan. 1, at 1 p.m. at the Pine Creek, located below the Valley View Park.
“I’m doing this in memory of my mom, Adella Saltzman, who died of Alzheimer’s Disease,” said Tammy, as she donned her mom’s Lithuanian T-shirt.
Organized by James Reed, the event, is sponsored by the Pine Creek Trout Nursery and local business sponsors and is held to raise funds for the trout nursery, a cooperative of the state Fish and Boat Commission and Valley View Gun Club.
