Manchaug Pond Foundation

This Saturday: Members’ Social & 50th Anniversary Celebration

Manchaug Pond FoundationGet together at the Members’ Social to bring the Manchaug Pond season into full swing! An old time cookout with door prizes and family activities for adults and children alike are planned as we celebrate 50 years of action for Manchaug Pond!

This year we’ll be down at the YMCA Camp Blanchard boat house and waterfront from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM, Saturday, June 24th serving up a menu reminiscent of past MPA meetings of hamburgers and hotdogs with old favorites of Paul’s seafood chowder and Helen’s Bakery fudge brownies.

Special activities, games and contests are planned for all ages!  Contests for the oldest vintage MPA t-shirt, and for the oldest member and the youngest with fun prizes awarded. Door prizes will be pulled every 15 minutes with a grand prize of a large, beautifully framed Lake Art map of Manchaug Pond awarded at 1:45 PM – only those at the event can win!  A 50/50 raffle with the winner taking home half the cash will also be drawn.

Children of all ages are the focus for family fun with activities and crafts ranging from building a”Lake in a Bottle”,  making paper bear dolls and a house for pollinators, to decorating a “fish bowl” sugar cookie, guessing jars, coloring, and more. The popcorn machine will be popping and beach balls and sand pails and shovels will be at the waterfront.
