SPARTA, NJ – As coronavirus cancelations continue, we can add a few more in Sparta; the Memorial Day parade and the Lake Mohawk Country Club July 4 fireworks.  The Lake Mohawk Country Club Ski Hawks are not skiing on Memorial Day.  Sparta Arts Summer Concert Series has not been planned.  

The list of virtual "stay at home" options continue to grow; school, township council, planning and zoning boards and other committee meetings, school board meetings and even high school graduation.

According to the township website, access to the municipal building remains “restricted” until June 1.  The website says the building is open but “municipal business will be conducted via telephone and online.”
