Angela SwiftFor several years in a row Angela Swift, a local mom, volunteer and triathlete has organized a New Year’s day plunge into Long Island Sound.

However, given the deep chill that has descended upon the area, Ms. Swift has decided not to host the event.

“Due to the extremely frigid temps forecasted for Monday, January 1, this year’s New Year’s Day Dip to benefit Kids in Crisis is cancelled,” Swift said in an email on Saturday.
