The Oneida County Lakes and Rivers spring newsletter is available online at this link,

They have a lot of up to date information on Shoreland Protection that should be a must read.

FYI ....    Did you know that this winter there were 93 days where the high for the day was below freezing and only 36 days with a low temperature below zero? Our first snow fell on Oct. 21, 2010 and we had 92 inches total for the season. There were 104 days with at least a trace of snow-compared to the historical average of 40 days! Check out the link and you'll find lots more .

Spring Greetings!

Things are finally budding out here, but it has been a long wait for Spring to appear. The Annual Dinner Meeting is set for Friday, June 17th 2011. Cocktails will be served at 6:00 and Dinner will begin at 7:00 at Holiday Acres Resort. The cost of the dinner is $14.50 which includes tax and tip and one free drink per person, courtesy of the Association. Please make your reservations by calling Joan McEnroe at 715-363-4602 or Jean Kilbane at 715-369-1875 by no later than June 15th.

Frosty has asked me to let you know that he still has copies of his book LAKE THOMPSON HISTORY AND STORIES available. He will have them for sale at the dinner only for $18.50 and after that for $20.00. Frosty has generously donated the profits of this book to the Lake Thompson Association, which have totaled $975, $225 of which comes from Holiday Acres. We thank you both as this money has helped to make available the packet which is being sent to you and also the new Directories.

We are hoping to have the new Directories available for pick-up at the Meeting for all dues paying members. This has been a big project and now includes all property owners on the lake. This was done so that we could include everyone to help maintain, protect, and improve the water quality and safety on the lake, as well as its fisheries and watershed. Education plays a big part in this, and the more you know, the better the chances are, of living on a quality lake and preserving it for future generations.  We hope you’ll join us in helping to make this happen. If you can’t make it to the meeting but would like a new directory, give one of the Board Members a call and we’ll send you one in the mail.

If you have any questions please contact a Board Member, they are as follows:

Kathy Furda  Pres.   715-369-0340                   
Kari Zambon  Sec.    715-369-1500

If you haven’t paid your dues yet, you may do so at the meeting.

We cordially invite all property owners to attend the Annual Meeting, meet your neighbors, and learn what you can do to make YOUR lake a better place.

Kathy Furda   Pres.
We will also have Identification cards available at the meeting for your home use to identify Aquatic Invasive Species
