People with boats on Candlewood Lake are being called on to volunteer their time and their vessel.
The Candlewood Lake clean up this summer is being hosted by the five towns that surround the lake. The Leaders of Brookfield, Danbury, New Fairfield, New Milford and Sherman are calling on volunteers from all of those municipalities to pick up winter debris and trash on the beach, surrounding land and from the water.
The debris will be brought by boat to Cottonwood Cove Marina, near the causeway to the Candlewood Isle community in New Fairfield. First Light Power is providing dumpsters there.
Once volunteers reach the marina, they will be treated to a barbeque.
New Fairfield Selectman John Hodge says the event was created to help preserve Candlewood Lake, and the surrounding land and beaches.
The clean up is scheduled for Saturday June 15th from 9am to 2pm with a rain date of June 22nd. Volunteers can register here.
