Live or camp Manchaug Pond?

Join in solidarity with the Manchaug Pond Foundation in the lighting of the Manchaug Pond shoreline at 8:30 PM Labor Day weekend on Sunday evening September 6th! 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 to make a spectacular and safe end of the season.

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 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.

If you didn’t purchase your flares at the August Annual Meeting, order online or see a board member.   Cost is $5./flare or 3 for $10. Both LED emergency and marine/road eco-friendly environmentally safe flares are available.

Join today!

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