Lake Mohawk Preservation honors NJ COLA's contributions at the annual Award Event on November 17, 2017

Each November, the Lake Mohawk Preservation Foundation recognizes the compassionate and community-spirited individuals and/or organizations who give back to our community and make a difference in the lives of lake communities within the State and our community throughout the year. For 2017, NJCOLA was selected as the organizational recipient of the 3rd Annual Fran Smith Organization Award for its lake management leadership and lake community support services at the November 17, 2017 event.  At the Award Event, Lake Mohawk thanked NJCOLA for its "long history of supporting the improvement of lake water quality, fostering education and exchanging information."
