Lake Preservation Recognition Celebration

Join your neighbors and friends at the Lake Preservation Recognition Celebration

Ernie Hofer with The Fran Smith Award
LMCC Bridal Path Committee with the Volunteer Action Award
LMCC Fishing Club with the Organizational Leadership Award

The Fran Smith Award was created by the Foundation as a tribute to the memory of Lake Mohawk Country Club’s long-time General Manager, the late Fran Smith. Fran was recognized nationally and regionally for her visionary leadership. The Foundation’s highest honor was created in her memory to recognize and honor extraordinary volunteer leadership in the realm of the protection of our lakes and water resources over multiple years of service.

This year the Foundation honors Ernie Hofer as its fourth Awardee.  Ernie has brought his unique talents and effective blend of sustained volunteer and in-depth professional perspective to the focus of improving the ecology of our lakes and the Wallkill River Watershed, especially Lake Mohawk. His impact has been broad across the region and state leading NJCOLA, the NJ Coalition of Lake Associations, a mantle once held by Fran Smith.

Tickets for this annual event are $40 per person in advance. The celebration begins in the Ballroom beginning at 6pm. A silent auction opens at 5:30 for viewing.
