The annual Candlewood Lake cleanup event will be held June 15 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The rain date isJune 22.

Community leaders encourage residents and lake users to participate.

First Light has joined the efforts by providing funding for the disposal of debris.

The goal is to remove debris and material from the beachfront, shoreline and any waterfront properties that may be dangerous or unsightly through all five towns bordering the lake.

The dropoff point for lake debris will be at the Cottonwood Cove Marina (6 Candlewood Isle Causeway) in New Fairfield.

Cleanup volunteers and boat owners are welcome for refreshments.
