New "Gadget" added to the site...

I've added a new gadget to the site so that you can now subscribe to the blog and receive a notice when a new post has been added. You just need to scroll down on the right hand side till you see Posts Subscribe. When you click on that it will give you easy instructions to have the blog come up on your Google Home page. It does give you some alternate choices as well. Then every time you go to your Google Home page you'll be able to see if there is a new posting. I thought this would be a handy way to keep up with what's happening on Lake Thompson and maybe get some more people involved. Please feel free to comment or send me things that you think are worth posting.

Is it Winter Yet?

Looks like it could be! Yes it did snow last Sunday night and we woke up to 2" of the white stuff. It stayed cold so there are still traces of it on the ground. But Thursday should bring the temps back all the way up to the 60's. At least Trick ot Treaters will have pleasant weather.

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.

Lake Thompson Christmas Party

Just wanted to let everyone know ahead of time when the Christmas Party is scheduled. It will be at Holiday Acres on Dec. 12, 2008. Cocktails at 6:00 and Dinner at 7:00. I think the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry will again be on our Christmas List so be thinking about what you might be able to add to our big food basket. I'll have more later when the dates gets closer.
