Willoughby Dip

(Pictured Here:  Shawn Timson heading back to warm up after his frigid dip in Lake Willoughby New Years Day 2015. Thank you Shawn!)

On New Year's Day in 22-degree weather, 52 people jumped into frigid Lake Willoughby in beautiful Barton, VT during the 11th annual Willoughby Dip to benefit the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life of Caledonia County. 

Most participants agreed it was actually colder when they got out of the water than when they were submerged. "It's certainly a shot in the arm," said Dave Keenan of Lyndonville. Keenan has participated in the event for the past seven or eight years, he said.

83 year-old Lyndy Burdet is also a veteran of the Willoughby Dip, having taken part in the past eight or nine, she said. Each year, Burdet is greeted with her bear skin coat after submerging herself in the frigid water. "But that's not the interesting part," Burdet said. "The interesting part is that this was my father's in 1919." Burdet, a cancer survivor, jumped into the water with three generations of her family: herself, her son Bill and her grandsons Ben, Steven and Kevin.

Volunteer Fred Laferriere created the Willoughby Dip and started the Relay For Life of Caledonia after he lost his brother, Jake Laferriere, to cancer.

After the final person jumped, Laferriere thanked the packed crowd for supporting the event and said "if you didn't jump this year, we'll be right here at 1 p.m. next year."

The 11th annual Willoughby Dip raised over $12,000 for the Relay For Life of Caledonia County! 

Thank you to all the courageous Dippers and Donors who made this event such a HUGE success!!

Thank you Fred and Katheryn Laferriere for creating such a successful and unique event!  

Your help is greatly valued and appreciated!
