CHATHAM, NJ - The Chatham Township Committee on Tuesday announced that The Colony Pool Club will host an Open House on Saturday, June 27th from Noon – 8 p.m.

Residents and non-residents alike are invited to visit the Club for free and spend an hour, or the entire day, and experience the Club’s newest amenities, including ‘The Log Roll,’ which has been a huge hit providing members hours of fun as they test their skills and try to stay atop a rolling 'log.'

The NEW Colony Café, which is now operated by The Fairmount Country Store, offers a variety of lunch and snack options, or visitors can make use of one of the six gas grills on site.
