The plunge, which first was held more than 15 years ago, not only has become an annual New Year's Day tradition, but also is a fundraiser for the Humane Society of Washington County.

Proceeds from this year's swim will be used to assist with the Sharpsburg Horse Rescue and Medical Fund, said Humane Society Executive Director Paul Miller, who was among the dozens who braved the 40-degree waters.
