A new year’s plunge


Jumping into Lake Loramie Friday, Jan 1 are, left to right, Deacon Chris Geiger, of Cincinnati, Peter Langenkamp, of Coldwater, Jacob Willig, of Cincinnati, and Father Ethan Moore, of Huber Heights. Geiger said of the jump “We are happy to begin the new year by offering our pains and suffering for the intentions of our Mother Mary.” Moore has been jumping into Lake Loramie for years to honor Mother Mary and mark the new year. Sometimes Moore has jumped alone and other times he has brought friends. Moore said the water was still very cold despite not having any ice on it this year. Luke Gronneberg | Sidney Daily News
