The 11 th Annual Penguin Plunge held on Saturday, Jan. 18 was not on Birch Lake in Hackensack due to unsafe ice conditions, and people still came out in great numbers, despite the snow storm, to enjoy the Back-to-Hack Celebration events. The Penguin Plunge registered nine teams and raised $4,370 for Hackensack Area Fire and Rescue and Faith in Action. Sixteen people registered to jump in the lake. Some were really grateful to not jump in the frigid water that day and some were visibly disappointed. You had to register to get the event t-shirt.
