Did you ever wonder why our beach is called the Frank B. Spear Memorial Beach?  For years, Frank took it upon himself to care for the beach and parking lot and perform other jobs that made it a pleasant safe place for generations of children.

For over 90 years, volunteers like Frank have made Lake Lackawanna a special place to live and raise families.  People like him have added to the amenities available to members.  Now some of those amenities need our attention. 

The “OUR LAKE” project is a continuation of the Lake Lackawanna volunteer spirit.  From its inception in 1925 to the present day, member participation has been the life of our community.  With many new members and some who have grown up here, we are introducing some of the projects that will continue to make our lake a great place to live.  The following is a list of tasks that could use some volunteer hours. Included are the names of people who signed up at our 2016 opening picnic. These are great jobs for a family to do together.
