Event Details

๐Ÿ—“ Date: Saturday, October 28th

โฐ Time: 12:00 am - 3:00 pm (Volunteers please arrive at 11 if possible)

We need help at two stations:

1. Drink Station

At the drink station we use the utility closet and have two hot carafes, we keep one in the closet and just swap them out and we pass out packets of cider and hot chocolate with the hot water. Just have to make sure people are being careful with the hot water.

2. Pumpkin Painting Station

Involves passing out pumpkins and paint, and refreshing the water.

If you would like to volunteer or have any questions, please reach out Sam Sobel at Samantha.Sobel@delaware.gov or contact the board at friends-of-lums-pond-board@googlegroups.com.

๐Ÿ‚ Fall Boat House Clean-Up ๐Ÿ‚

By Chriss Funcheon

Event Details

๐Ÿ—“ Date: Sunday, November 12th

โฐ Time: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

๐Ÿ“ Location: Boat house in area two

As the leaves turn to fiery hues and the crisp autumn air sweeps through the park, we invite you to join us for a memorable day at the Lums Pond boat house. This is more than just a clean-up; itโ€™s a chance to meet new faces, reconnect with old friends, and spark ideas for future gatherings.

Agenda for the Day:
  • 9:00 AM: Arrive at the boat house. Brief welcome and introduction to the dayโ€™s activities.
  • 9:15 AM - 11:45 AM: Roll up your sleeves and help us beautify the boat house area. Bring your work gloves, enthusiasm, and a willingness to make a positive impact. Examples of some things we would like to do: sweep out the pole building (kayak/canoe building), go through life jackets and throw out ones with holes, and clean out the paddle boats if they are pulled out of the water.
  • 12:00 PM: Wind up the event with a sense of accomplishment and the satisfaction of knowing youโ€™ve contributed to preserving this wonderful place we all cherish.

To assist us in planning for the day, please RSVP by visiting our event page on Facebook or contact the board at friends-of-lums-pond-board@googlegroups.com.

We look forward to spending a wonderful day with all of you. Thank you for being a part of the โ€œFriends of Lums Pondโ€ family. See you on November 12th at the boat house!
