July 13, 2017 - By Holly Odgers (LHF): The Morris County Historic Preservation Trust Fund Review Board has recommended $2.9 million in county grants from the county’s 2017 Preservation Trust Fund to help preserve, restore, or protect 25 historic sites in 15 towns across Morris County.
On July 1st 2017, residents from around the lake supported the local Veterans by being on the shoreline to send up a big cheer for the people that have served their country.
As we enter into the heavy 2017 boating season for Lake Hopatcong, we find that the lake level is higher than past years, which means that weed growth at this point has not been as bad in past years. But everyone around the lake knows this is only a problem that is waiting to surface.
The Lake Hopatcong Foundation (LHF) continues to help the community with their major drive to Shop Local during the month of July. And this year Hopatcong Lake Regional News, will be augmenting them to further drive support and awareness with local residents into our local businesses.
The museum will be open this Friday from 5:00-8:00 PM. In addition to all regular exhibits we will be featuring a special small exhibit of items found during the archaeological survey at the former Camp Tegawitha site in Hopatcong. This area is more commonly known these days as the home of the eagle’s nest.
This annual event at the Lake Hopatcong Yacht Club received their highest attendance, and had over 50 boats on display.
This exciting annual event where we “Get Fit for the Lake” is back and now schedule for September 24, 2017. This event continues to feature a wide variety of events regardless of your physical condition!
The readers of Hopatcong Lake Regional News have been asking the question. “What’s Happening to our Lake, with all of this scum on the surface?" So, we investigated the issue and here is what we know. The good news is this should be a short-term issue!
The state Department of Environmental Protection is awarding $1.2 million in annual Clean Communities grants to Morris County and its 39 municipalities to help finance litter cleanups to beautify New Jersey’s communities and roadsides.
LHF - Water ScoutsThe Lake Hopatcong Water Scouts were established by the Knee Deep Club in 2010 to seek out and remove any instances of the invasive water chestnut species, and the LHF took over the management of the scouts in 2013.
