would like to see right now. They're simply Mourning
Dove tracks. A foursome were scrounging around the deck at my studio and when I approached them a whole flock flew up right in front of me. I don't think I've ever seen that many Mourning Doves together at once. But all I caught on film were the tracks they left behind.
Everyone is gearing up for the start of hunting season on Saturday and with the cold temps and light snow conditions are looking good. The DNR said that this is not a typical year in that there aren't as many around this year. So it may prove to be a bit more challenging.
Good luck and be safe out there.

Please call no later than dec. 10th. The cost of the dinner will be $15.50. We would once again like to help out the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry so if you could bring canned goods or make a monetary donation that would be great. I’ll include the website if you have any questions. www.Rhinelanderareafoodpantry.org/
Also don’t forget about our own website.
I have been trying to post some things of interest, and if you have something that’s post worthy, photos, ideas, thoughts, please let me know.
So get your Christmas spirit out, grab some cans from the cupboard, and come have a good time. Happy holidays!

Well, the leaves are pretty much off the tress now and the temps have been dipping downward. But the good news is the lake's not frozen yet! But there have been alot of chilly mornings when the lake is perfectly still with a coating of fog.
I wanted to post this certificate we received recognizing our volunteer work with AIS (Aquatic Invasive Species) at the landings. A very large pat on the back goes out to our volunteers listed below...
Bob Rossi,Mike Roling,
Mary Oelrich, Tom & Sue Welch, Jim Auchter, Mike & Renee Hodell and kids, Dennis Wittig, and Joel & Kathy Furda
It's been a consensus that many people are becoming aware of this problem and are careful to make sure their boats and trailers are clean. Up until the end of the season we had a clean bill of health, but one of our volunteers did find some Rusty Crayfish, which was identified by the DNR. Therefore we had to place a sign identifying that in our new kiosk. Lets work even harder next year to keep our lake as clean as possible.

This year’s annual summer picnic will take place at Holiday Acres on Sunday, August 17, 2008 at 12:30. Please bring your own meat and a dish to share with your neighbors. Beverages and grill will be provided. We’ve been having great weather this summer, with temps in the high 70’s low 80’s and dipping down into the 50’s at night. Perfect for picnics!
I have some news…we have a new website for the Association!
You can find it at:
I’ve only posted a couple times until I could send the site to everyone. I’m going to try to always post the Flyers for meetings and events as well as interesting Lake news. So if you have any questions, newsy items worthy of posting, or great photos you’d like to share, send them to me in an email and I will try to post them. You might have to bear with me a little on this as I’m not totally “site savvy” and it may take me awhile to figure things out. So if there were anyone out there who would like to lend his or her expertise, I would gladly welcome it. So check it out and let me know how I’m doing.
