The Sluice Pond Association creates a sense of community among its members by offering events and celebrations throughout the year.
POND WEED TREATMENT For 2017 TBA.
The SPA is contacted the City to arrange to have another treatment for the weeds this spring. We are not yet set up with the contract schedule for this summer. We are looking for a few volunteers who will put up posters before the day of the treatment. In the past, the contractor recommended no swimming or fishing for 24 hours after the treatment and no use of the water by people, pets or plants for at least 5 days or longer.
Next scheduled events:
In addition to the Annual 4th of July celebration, we traditionally have a Children's Boat Parade (for children of all ages) and the annual Holiday Season celebration with neighbors of all spiritual beliefs. Other events focus on our responsibility to eachother as neighbors and as the trustees and stewards of Sluice Pond. These events include the semi-annual clean-up of the waterfront and the public access areas of Sluice Pond. We invite members, their neighbors and all of the small businesses located on Sluice Pond and in Wyoma Square to join us in annual clean-up events as well as in community water safety and crime watch activities.
WYOMA SQARE FAMILY FESTIVAL
Always the last Saturday in June, this year the festival will once again feature sidewalk sales, face painting and lots of good eats and treats for the entire family always on the last Saturday in June.
The DPW and Pond Clean Up.
The Lynn DPW has been contacted and we have requested assistance with cleaning near the gate next to the 4Winds on Broadway, the embankment near the Knights of Columbus and the Briarcliff parking lot and boat ramp. Both DPW crews and Volunteers are welcome to clean public grounds on Broadway and the boat ramp as well as near the K of C and the public egress on Kernwood Drive.
We are once again distributing Membership forms. Membership is only $20 per household and helps to offset the costs of conducting activities at Sluice Pond. Pond abutters and neighboring residents are welcome to join Sluice Pond Association, run for office and help us to preserve the pond for ourselves and the general public.
