Dear Friend of Cupsaw Lake,

We are pleased to announce this year is Cupsaw Lake’s 70th anniversary! In commemoration of this historic event we are publishing a 70th Anniversary Magazine. This magazine will be over 30 pages using heavy stock paper, in full color, bound with a spine and include:

  • A history of Ringwood
  • A history of Cupsaw Lake…from its inception in 1944…concentration on its most recent history
  • Dozens of photos and documents illustrating the Lake’s history and its place in Ringwood lore
  • Coverage of Cupsaw’s clubs/organizations/committees and the role they play in Cupsaw Lake
  • Fun facts and memorabilia
  • Boosters and advertising that will be of interest to Cupsaw Lake member families and those
    who love Ringwood

This is Cupsaw Lake’s first magazine in 20 years. We anticipate a press run of at least 1,000 copies. While the publication will be in the households of Cupsaw Lake member families, it will also be sold to the general public, including out of town residents. (We already have a mailing list from many requests!)

Please take a moment and think about placing an ad for your business in this commemorative publication. To help, we’ve attached an ad submission form. Ads will appear in full color on glossy heavy-stock paper. It’s going to be impressive, a keepsake that people will refer back to time and time again!

Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to hearing from you.

Letter from the President – March 2014

Happy spring, Cupsaw Lake!

Hope you’re ready to thaw out and get back in the sunlight! It’s been a long winter, but we’ve made the most of it with our ongoing children’s, fitness, and men’s programs at the clubhouse.

We enjoyed a festive St. Paddy’s Day celebration that made everyone Irish for an evening! Thanks to all who helped make the event possible and all who attended. As we approach the warmer weather and are able to use more of the lake area, keep an eye out for more events and activities to participate in with the community. We’ll forget about the rest of this snow and be jumping into the lake in no time!

Our environmental committee has been quite active in the past few months, both organizing and participating in numerous regional lake association meetings. These meetings are set up to share knowledge between lake communities and to gain efficiencies in sharing services that the local lakes would otherwise all utilize separately. A big thank you to Alan Fedeli and his committee for keeping the health and safety of our lake top-of-mind all year round.

(A quick PSA – we can all do our part to keep the lake clean with routine maintenance to our septic systems, especially those of us upstream from the lake!)

By now, I’m sure we are all aware that Cupsaw is turning 70 this year! We are currently compiling a 70th Anniversary Magazine and selling boosters and ads to round out an incredible walk down memory lane! Contact the Magazine Committee soon to reserve your space in this commemorative publication.

Speaking of the lake – have you paid your dues yet? Get your dues in by March 31st to avoid late fees!

It feels like it would be breaking tradition at this point if I didn’t close with asking for your support. We are preparing for another great summer at the lake and it takes a lot of effort by many volunteers to keep our lake thriving. Contact us and get involved! At very least, please give your constructive feedback and suggestions to help improve our wonderful community.

Fire Relief Drive for Cupsaw Family

Dear Friends and Families of Cupsaw Lake,

As some of us witnessed Tuesday evening or heard about Wednesday, there was a devastating house fire on Cupsaw Drive. We are grateful that everyone made it out of the house safely.  Although there isn’t much to be salvaged in the remains of the house, their home in Cupsaw stays strong.

Even before many of the details were clear, there were already members of our community that were asking how they could support in our friend and neighbor’s time of need.  We are coordinating an online fund drive for those who would like to contribute. We will collect all of the funds and purchase a Visa/Amex gift card for the family to use in this time of need.

There is also a Gift Card Drive to collect donations to useful retailers (Target, Home Depot, Wal-Mart, ShopRite, Kohl’s etc.) to help the family rebuild from the essentials. Coldwell Bankers, next to Stop & Shop, has graciously offered to be a drop-off point for these cards, so they can be kept securely.

Donate to the Yuhas Family

 Thank you for being a part of what makes this community special!
