Labor Day Weekend Lighting of the Shoreline

September 3 @ 8:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Manchaug Pond Foundation Event

Join us in lighting the Manchaug Pond shoreline at 8:30 PM for Labor Day weekend on Sunday evening September 3rd! This remains the last big weekend on the lake as children go back to school and the summer vacation season comes to an end.  With flares, tiki torches, and campfires, light your waterfront, campsite and home showing solidarity with the Manchaug Pond Foundation.

This is a long-standing tradition begun over 40 years ago, setting the shoreline of Manchaug Pond aglow on the eves of July 4th and Labor Day. The practice was suggested at the 1974 MPA Annual Meeting by member Professor Robert Nunnemacher after experiencing at a lake in New York and loved the effect. The MPA membership unanimously voted that day to bring the practice to Manchaug Pond where it has been a tradition ever since.

If you didn’t purchase your flares at the August Annual Meeting,  contact us for your Area Representative to deliver. Price is 3 for $10 or $5 a piece.  Try our new eco-friendly LED Flares or the traditional 30 minute marine/road flare!

Join today!

Three cheers for the Manchaug Pond Foundation celebrating 50 years of advocacy and action for Manchaug Pond!
