Lake Parsippany

This year’s Open House is fixing to become a huge splash with several new activities! Our first community-wide flea market/garage sale, an increased role for the Girl and Boy Scouts, a fishing contest, the Dragon Boat Rowing Team, and much more!

The Saturday, June 1 Open House is a chance to experience the many fun and exciting activities of our lake association at no cost. The day-long event will be held at Drewes Beach, Lake Shore Drive and Dorothy Road from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

A community-wide flea market will be held on the grass outside the fenced-in beach area. There will be vendors selling their wares. But, you can also set-up a table and make a few bucks getting rid of the clutter around the house.  Ten dollars gets you a 10×10 foot square patch for your things.

There will be contests for kids run by the scouts. Let them try their hands at several carnival style games and win some fun prizes. Boy Scouts will be ceremonially raising and lowering the flag. Plus, Girl Scouts will be making the little ones look funny with creative face painting!

The Fishing Club is sponsoring a fishing contest starting at 9:00 a.m. The largest fish caught that day wins a prize. However, you must register to enter. Stop by their table under the pavilion. Show off the winning fish with a picture to be published in Parsippany Focus.

The Ladies Club will be selling LPPOA 80th Anniversary Beach Towels.

The Book Club is selling used books. The Swim Team is serving up the morning coffee and bagels while the Men’s Club grills up the burgers and dogs. The lifeguards will give a free ice pop to anyone bringing food for the community food pantry.

A bunch of community groups and government services will be available to provide helpful tips on bicycle and pedestrian safety, fire safety, clean storm water and keeping the lake’s ecosystem healthy to name a few.

And, we may even have a local teen band or two perform! This is in addition to the swimming, DJ, raffles, horseshoes, pick-up volleyball, fire and rescue trucks, dragon boat races and much, much more!

Open House is also the last chance to purchase your LPPOA membership at the discounted rates. In comparing the LPPOA membership costs to many of the other lake and pool memberships in the area, they are one of the best deals for the cost.

Don’t forget to sign up for all those great activities and clubs while you are there.
