As spring is right around the corner, it’s time local businesses and organizations to secure a spot in the lineup biggest event of the year, the annual Lake Hopatcong Block Party.
February 9, 2018 | By Holly Odgers - The sky was grey and tiny snowflakes were just starting to swirl on Sunday morning, February 4, as more than 30 adults and kids gathered for an Ice Fishing 101 workshop at Hopatcong State Park. It was perfect weather, actually, for this hardy group of both experienced and aspiring winter anglers.
The Lake Hopatcong is to receive $500,000 annually for the protection, preservation, restoration, maintenance, management and enhancement of New Jersey’s largest state-run lake
The annual chili cook-off was held Sunday at Patrick’s Pub to benefit Team Patrick’s Leap in the Lake that further supports special needs children at Camp Moore.
The 5th Annual Lake Hopatcong Block Party will be held on Saturday, May 12, 2018 (rain or shine!) 10 am to 5 pm at Hopatcong State Park.
The Lake Hopatcong Foundation was selected to receive an incubation grant from the New Jersey Council for the Humanities (NJCH) to conduct a front-end evaluation survey to assist us with determining what type of programming will be of most interest to the community as we prepare for the opening of the Lake Hopatcong Cultural and Environmental Center.
New in 2018, the Lake Hopatcong Foundation, in cooperation with NJ DEP Division of Parks and Forestry, will be coordinating and offering community programming at Hopatcong State Park.
As the Lake Region gets ready for the big Chili Cook-Off coming up this Sunday, Hopatcong Lake Regional News had a chance to catch up with Team Patrick’s Pub.
Work by the New Jersey legislature on Monday sent the proposed Lake Hopatcong Fund to NJ Governor Chris Christie, where it is expected to be signed before he leaves office.
