We’re down here at the Windjammer in Misquamicut for the 17th annual Penguin Plunge to benefit the Westerly WARM Center. The temperature is a balmy 50 degrees, maybe a bit warm for penguins, but not bad, in contrast to the big storm we had last weekend. The Penguin Plunge is a New Year’s Day tradition that attracts hundreds of people and is a great way to start the New Year while helping those less fortunate.
The Penguin Plunge had to be postponed the last two years because of Covid. So it’s great to see a big turnout for today’s event.
After the plunge hot chocolate and hot soup will be served to help people WARM up. Everyone out here today is having fun and helping to fight hunger and homelessness in Southern Rhode Island and New London County.
