Beach Closing 2022

Thank you to everyone that came out to Beach Closing!

It was a beautiful night at our lake. Special thanks to our set up crew: Tricia and Brian Curiale, Lindsay and George Smith, Steve Boianelli, Dave Martin, Melanie Gessman, Hillary Ellis, Lauren White & Kate Brady.


Help Needed with Off-season Trash Collection at the Beach

TLA is looking for families to volunteer to help with the trash/recycling at

the lake during the offseason. The link to the Sign Up Genius is below.

You would be in charge of taking the trash up the evening of the day you

selected and getting the cans back to the beach after it has been

collected the following day. The Sign Up Genius is organized by week

and tells you whether it’s just trash or trash & recycling that need to go

out. Please see the link for more info and consider selecting a week to



Killdeer Maintenance and Lake Lowering

Killdeer lake will be lowered in October in order to mow the dam and conduct

other maintenance around the lake. We anticipate that the lake will be lowered

through the end of November.

Phragmites Watch

Phragmites (Phragmites Australias) is a common invasive reed found

throughout New Jersey. We have Phragmites popping up in different locations

along our lakes edges. If you are a lakefront homeowner, you must cut and

control this plant to prevent it from spreading. You can google Phragmites

Australias if you are unclear as to what it looks like. Contact the Lake

Committee at if you are uncertain about its

presence on your property.


It is time to take your boat

home where it is safe


School is out and you

won't be using it

anymore this year.

The lifeguard is not at the

beach monitoring


The lake is being lowered,

so the boating season is


All boats must be off of the

boat racks and off of TLA

property by Halloween




TLA’s Winter Party will take place at LaScala’s Fire in Marlton on

Saturday, January 21 beginning at 6pm

This is a TLA adult members only party.

More information on ticket sales will be in the December Tidbits.


Babysitter List or Youth Services

I have had many new neighbors request the Babysitter List or Youth Services. If your child is interested in being added please email me their name, date of birth and phone number. If they are on the list and no longer want to be, please let me know.

Would you like a copy of the Babysitter List or Youth Services? Please email me with your name and address and I will forward.They will no longer be in the Tidbits. Thank you!


TLA Beach and Trails connecting to the beach are smoke-free



In order for everyone to safely enjoy our open spaces and walking trails, Medford Township and the TLA Board of Directors would like to offer a reminder that, per Chapter 66 of the Medford Township Administrative code, dogs must be kept on a leash. Also, dog owners are required under this same ordinance to remove their pet's waste from our open space and trails. Pet waste is not only offensive, but it can pollute water as it is washed by rain into our lakes. Help keep our lakes clean by doing your part to clean-up after your dogs.

Thank you!


Did You Know???

It’s illegal to dispose of brush, trees and yard material on common grounds. We still have people throwing their brush and tree limbs in the common grounds. Please dispose of properly!


We are starting weekly pickup basketball for adults on Sundays. Games will start at 9am at the beach court. Feel free to come earlier to warm up. Text Andrew Massaro (609-828-4004) with any questions.

Why has the Medford-Vincentown Rotary put on this fantastic parade year after year? All you need to do is walk down Main Street and see the hundreds of kids all dressed in custom and excitedly waiting for the first float to come by. It's a magical night that brings the community together and has grown to attract 30, 000 spectators and participants. With marching bands and cheerleaders, princesses and fireman the Medford-Vincentown Rotary Halloween parade is a family friendly site to see.

The Parade starts at 7:00pm, Main Street closes to traffic at 6:00pm. The 1 mile long

parade starts at the float staging ground located at St. Mary's of the Lakes School and

continues East onto Fire House Lane then turns right onto Main Street and continues

south to Maurice and Everett Haines School.
