While the polar plunge event is not new to Hague, the name changed in 2021 to honor of Katy Laundree Wells who unexpectedly passed away. Katy was a long-time community supporter, volunteer, and overall wonderful person who dedicated much of her life to the betterment of Hague and the area. The Hague Polar Plunge or “Freezin For A Reason” was created by Meg and Tom Haskell of Hague, NY who partnered with WOKO to be able to support the Vermont Children’s Hospital. The committee has raised thousands of dollars from the support of change bandits and community members who fundraise for this event.

Polar Plunge, “Freezin For A Reason” donation forms are available at the Town of Hague Community Center (Town offices), Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce, Silver Bay General Store, and from event volunteers. Forms will also be available online at and in the event listing on
