The Londonderry Commerce and Visitors Center (CVC) hosts its second annual “Visit Adams Pond Day” from 1 to 4 p.m. on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 12, 2013. The event will start at the Mack’s Apples U-Pick 2 Pavilion, which is located on Adams Road between Cross Road and Fiddlers Ridge Road.
During the event, families can bring a picnic lunch, take a stroll and picturesque photos in the apple blossoms, receive special prizes, and participate in a fun nature hunt for all ages. The CVC will be raffling off a Mother’s Day basket which will contain donated items from Salon Bogar, Martinelli Travel, Creative Fitness for Women, CR Sparks, and the Londonderry CVC. There is no cost for entering the raffle.
Organizers of the event hope that it will bring awareness to the current issue that Mack’s Apples is facing. “The pond is a hidden asset to the community of Londonderry. It helps keep the water table up so the farm can use the water for irrigation,” explained Kathy Wagner, Director of the CVC. The dam at the south end of the pond, which keeps it full, has been around for a very long time, she added.
Presently, the State is requiring Mack’s Apples to obtain an engineering study in order to determine if the dam needs improvements; the study will cost between $15,000 and $25,000. Mack’s Apples is working with the State to find a solution. The Town of Londonderry and Senator Sharon Carson (R) is also working with Mack’s to see if a temporary solution can be found until the dam is reestablished by the State for use.
