The first families moved into Mountain Lakes in 1911, just as the Stickley’s were moving into the Log House. We enjoyed participating in their Centennial kick-off last week, and, in honor of our shared centennials, we have invited residents to participate in a special Mountain Lakes Day at Craftsman Farms on Sunday, February 6.
Families and neighbors gathered at snow covered Briarcliff Park and the Community Church and enjoyed activities reminiscent of the kinds of outdoor winter fun that the early pioneers of the Borough enjoyed back in 1911 at its founding. Old-fashioned children’s games from Craftsman Farms, a horse-drawn hayride, a birthday cake baking contest, socializing with neighbors around a warm fire while listening to the vocal harmonies of the barbershop quartet “Steppin’ Out!” were just some of the activities that Lakers enjoyed. There were even some who braved the 20 degree weather and were ice-skating. For photos from the event, click on the slideshow.
