Saturday, May 21, 2022

Location: New Fairfield Town Park

Arrive: 8:00-10:00am

Join us to clean up Candlewood Lake on May 21, 2022, for the annual J. Marsicano and F. Cioffi Memorial Candlewood Lake Clean-Up! Registration Closes on Wednesday, May 18th!

Like last year, Boat Captains will provide their own crew. We will also not be matching crew members to boat captains. Captains and crews should pick up their materials (including bags, gloves and additional instructions) between 8-10am at New Fairfield Town Park boat launch. Return at around noon to unload your trash at the ramp and come up to the park for some lunch! 

In addition to signing up themselves, Boat Captains must also have every member of their crew sign the waiver form found at the above link!

Be sure to follow CLA social media for additional updates! 

Registration for the 2022 Clean Up Has Closed!
