Independence Day ~ Happy Fourth of July, 2021!
SUNSET CRUISE: July 4th
We’ll see you out on the lake for a red, white and blue sunset cruise as we celebrate Independence Day together here on Manchaug Pond!
LIGHTING OF THE SHORELINE: Let’s go with a rain date of Sunday, July 4th, 9:00 p.m.
Join in solidarity with the Manchaug Pond Foundation in the Lighting of the Shoreline with flares, Tiki torches, and campfires, lighting up your waterfront or campsite showing solidarity with the Manchaug Pond Foundation. With rain continuing to fall today on Manchaug Pond, let’s save the lighting for Sunday, July 4th, at 9:00 p.m.
A long-standing tradition begun over 40 years ago, setting the shoreline of Manchaug Pond aglow for July 4th and Labor Day celebrations, the practice was suggested at the 1974 Manchaug Pond Association Annual Meeting by member Professor Robert Nunnemacher after experiencing the practice at a lake in New York and loving the effect. The membership unanimously voted that day to bring the practice to Manchaug Pond where it has been a tradition ever since.
Although Eco-environmentally friendly, if you are using traditional flares, after burning please dispose of the remaining salt-like substance and metal wire in the trash as this could pose a contamination risk to water quality and safety.
Keep the holiday festive and safe!
On-Lake POKER RUN: Sunday, July 25th, 1:00 p.m.
