Lake Thompson Annual Christmas Party

Mark your calendars for Dec.18, 2009 for our Annual Christmas Get Together. It will be held at Holiday Acres, where Cocktails will begin at 6:00 and dinner will be served at 7:00. Reservations are appreciated and can be made by calling:
Joan McEnroe 715-362-4602 or
Jean Kilbane 715-369-1875

Please call no later than Dec. 16th. The cost of the dinner will be $15.50 . Once again, I’d like to see us help out the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry, this Holiday Season, so if you have some nonperishable items or monetary donations please bring them with you. Let’s see if we can make a sizable donation to help those who are having a difficult time getting through this tough economic period. If you have any questions about the Food Pantry I’m including their website so you can see what they need most.
And don’t forget to check our website . I posted some pictures of the picnic and a few other things, but I’m always looking for someone to help me out with more information. So if you have some news, photos, ideas, anything that’s post worthy, please let me know.
So pull out your Christmas Spirit, grab some cans or your checkbook, and join us for some Holiday Cheer. Looking forward to seeing you all there! And to the Snow Birds, Happy Holidays!

Excellent Article....

Jim Auchter just sent me this article about the Zebra Mussel infestation that was printed recently, in the Journal Sentinal. It's an excellent article about this terrible problem and how it starts from ocean-going vessels dumping their ballast water into the Great Lakes sytem. The kicker?? It's start off with an interview of a Lake Metonga vacationer who has cut their foot on this zebra mussel infested lake. And for those of you who don't know where Lake Metonga is, it's right in the next county, Crandon, WI. Give this article a read, particulary if you're interested in your property values, where your children or grandchildren are swimming, and if you DON"T think that Invasive Species are a problem way up here in the north. Just click on the link and it should get you right to the article.

Thanks Jim for bringing it to my attention.
