The Lake Hopatcong Foundation has announced that Becky Rubenstein will be stepping down, and both Sheri Salamanca and Rich Romeo will be joining the board.

With Sincerest Appreciation

Becky Rubenstein Resigns LHFBecky Rubenstein will be stepping down from the Lake Hopatcong Foundation Board of Trustees after her three-year term.  We would like to sincerely thank Becky for her dedication, expertise, and tireless efforts on behalf of the foundation.  Becky has been volunteering for the foundation for many years.  Her brainchild, Lake Loop, has become one of our signature events – bringing the community together and using our lake resources to get fit  – all while raising money to help improve Lake Hopatcong for everyone.  Over its four-year history, Lake Loop has grown from its original bike challenge to a bike ride, 5K, kayak paddle, and dog walk!  All those options take a lot of coordinating, and Becky has brought together an impressive group of dedicated volunteers that keep Lake Loop humming like a well-oiled machine.   Though Becky will be stepping down from her role as board member, we are thrilled that she graciously offered to organize the Lake Loop in 2017.

“Becky personifies the best in volunteerism.  She is hard working, caring, motivated, works well with everyone, and gets the job done.  She brought all of these qualities with her to the board, and we will miss her presence and thoughtfulness at our board meetings.  We are so pleased that she will still be a strong part of our organization as we move forward,” said Chairman of the Board Marty Kane.

A Warm Welcome

We would like to welcome two new members to the Lake Hopatcong Foundation Board of Trustees:

Sheri Salamanca Joins LHFSheri Salamanca spent many high school summers vacationing with friends on Raccoon Island on the lake. After graduating from Wayne Valley High School, she attended William Paterson University earning a B.S. in Exercise Physiology. Sheri worked for several years in the exercise and rehabilitation field before marrying her husband Paul and having two daughters Kaylee and Emilia. In January of 2012, Sheri and Paul fell in love with a home that boasts stunning lake views in Landing, where they currently reside as full-time residents. Sheri has since obtained her real estate license and works at RE/MAX in Landing. She and her husband also founded Blue Rock Investment Group, a company that focuses on rehabbing residential homes in communities surrounding Lake Hopatcong. Sheri and her family enjoy all the lake has to offer and spends as much time as they can on their boat in the summer.

Richard Romeo joins LHFRichard P. Romeo and his wife Terri have been summer residents of Lake Hopatcong since 1991. Friends and family are frequent visitors enjoying the full spectrum of lake activities, whether tubing on their boat or celebrating his parents’ 60th wedding anniversary aboard the Miss Lotta.  Rich is a partner in the New York City law firm of Salon Marrow, with offices also in Hackensack, New Jersey, representing small to mid-sized businesses in commercial transactions and litigation, with an emphasis on representing companies in employment matters. In addition to serving on the Volunteer Water Quality Committee of the LHF, Rich is also a member of Lake Hopatcong Yacht Club and the Knee Deep Club. Rich has served as Trustee of Muhlenberg College since 1999 and is Secretary of Muhlenberg’s Board of Trustees.  He was also elected as Village Trustee of the Village of Mount Kisco, New York in 1992, serving as Deputy Mayor from 1999-2003.  Since 2006, Rich has served as a member of the volunteer Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) Inspector General’s Management Advisory Board.  He graduated from Muhlenberg College in 1979 and Brooklyn Law School in 1982.
