Seven members of the Manchester Lions Club recently participated in the Lobster Dip for Special Olympics Maine.

The Lobster Dip is Maine’s largest and original ocean plunge, created in 1988 by the Portland Rugby Club to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics, according to a news release from Diana Worthing. Normally held every year on New Year’s Day, it was postponed twice this year because of the weather.
