PARSIPPANY — The Glacier Hills Pool Association recently celebrated its 60th Annual Clambake on September 2, at the Glacier Hills Parklands. Remarkably, this association stands as one of the few of its kind still active today, thriving largely due to the dedication of membership volunteers and its commitment to fostering community ties.
This year was particularly special, as the Association took the opportunity to honor one of its pioneers, Keith Ferris. Globally recognized as a distinguished aviation artist, Keith played an instrumental role in the inception of the Glacier Hills Pool Association over six decades ago. Alongside his neighbors, Keith embarked on an ambitious journey, selling bonds to secure the ten acres that now house the pool and its amenities.
The dedication of the early members was immense, with as many as ninety volunteers consistently turning up to contribute to the construction of the parklands and the Olympic-sized pool. Gail Brazicki, a former president of the association, took to the podium to pay tribute to Keith Ferris and to reminisce about the devoted members who made the pool’s existence possible.
