Big splashes were made in the Monongahela River Saturday in Coal Center during the first “Frosty Frolic” held by the California Area School District Foundation.

People of all ages plunged into the frosty Monongahela River to raise money for scholarships, grants and other support of the students and the California Area School District.

Prizes were awarded for the most money raised by various groups including California University of Pennsylvania students, California Area High School students and alumni as well as community participants. Prizes for best costumes were also given.
