Lobster Dip 2021
Three Brother Knights of our council answered the call of the wild and crazy on New Years Day , 2021, in support of the Maine Special Olympics. The ME SO organization had to adapt to Covid this year and cancelled plans for the usual mass dip in Old Orchard Beach in favor of what they called the “Lobster Roll”—volunteers stripping down to their skivvies and rolling on the ground in the snow. “Bah!” said our boys at the idea of Lobster Rolling, “That idea sounds worse than road rash! We’d rather dip!” And so they did in conjunction with the KofC State Council, represented by another half dozen hardy souls who made the plunge into the ocean as a small group in OOB on Jan 1. Our three dippers accounted for $1065 between them for the benefit of ME Special Olympics, a significant chunk of the Maine Knights of Columbus team total.
