Live or camp Manchaug Pond?  Love the celebrating?  Keep it going tonight …

Manchaug Pond Foundation July 4th Lighting of the Shoreline

Join in solidarity with the Manchaug Pond Foundation in the Lighting of the Shoreline at 8:30 PM tonight, Sunday evening, September 1st on this Labor Day weekend! It’s the last big weekend on the lake as the weather cools, children go back to school and the summer vacation season comes to an end.  With flares, Tiki torches, and campfires, light your waterfront or campsite showing solidarity with the Manchaug Pond Foundation to make a spectacular and safe end of the season.

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 the practice at a lake in New York and loving the effect. The MPA membership unanimously voted that day to bring the practice to Manchaug Pond where it has been a tradition ever since.
