The Lake Hopatcong Foundation invites our donors and the broader lake community to learn about our recent accomplishments and 2019 plans at our annual meeting on May 3, 2019 at the Lake Hopatcong Foundation Environmental and Cultural Center, 125 Landing Road, Landing.
Thanks to the incredible Lake Hopatcong community, we have a lot of success stories to share this year, including the first season of the Floating Classroom and the opening of our historical and beautiful new home! We last held our annual meeting at this building in 2015 and it’s amazing to see how far we have come in so many ways since then. After years of gathering at a variety of places around the lake to meet with our supporters, it’s so gratifying to finally be able to invite the community to our home for this annual gathering.
At this event, we will officially open the rehabilitated Lake Hopatcong Train Station, giving visitors a chance to tour the newly rehabilitated building, now the Lake Hopatcong Foundation Environmental and Cultural Center. From 5 to 7 p.m., the doors will be open for a casual open house, followed by the beginning of the Annual Meeting at 7 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
The Lake Hopatcong Station was first opened in 1911 as a showcase for the Lackawanna Railroad, an impressive gateway to Lake Hopatcong, and a hub for water, rail, and trolley transportation. More than a century after its construction, the station has a new mission and renewed life as the Lake Hopatcong Foundation Environmental and Cultural Center, and is on the New Jersey and National Registers of Historic Places.
We hope you can attend to explore our new home, and to hear more about the LHF story and how to be a part of the great things that are planned in the year ahead. Seated attendance is limited by the building code, so guests who intend to stay for the 7 pm meeting are encouraged to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
