Many took the plunge this past weekend. The 7th Annual Schwartz Memorial Plunge took place at Lions Park in Cheyenne. Every year a group of family, friends, the F.E. Warren and Cheyenne communities gather to remember Technical Sergeant Matthew Schwartz. The group participates in a Polar Plunge by jumping into the frozen over Sloans Lake at Lions Park. The average water temperature is chilly Wyoming 29 degrees!!
