The annual Candlewood Lake Cleanup event, organized by the five Candlewood Lake town leaders, will be held June 15 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

A rain date of June 22 is slated.

Community leaders encourage residents and lake users to participate.

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

The intention of the event is to remove debris and material that may be dangerous or unsightly for our lake communities from the beachfront, shoreline and waterfront properties.

As in the past, the drop-off 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.
