Our AIS Group of Jr. Officers

This summers group of AIS Jr. Officers for Lake Thompson ... Left to Right Justice Ring, Paul Schrieber, Luke Fritz and Mike Fritz. Please notice the new tent for which we received this years funding . It has been placed at the landing so we are now a very important presence. It really sends a message that we are committed to keeping the Lake clean and free of Aquatic Invasive Species and it gives the boys a little shade from the sun. Here's a few stats from last year to give you an idea of what the inspection program has been doing. There were 438 boats checked at the Landing and direct contact with over a 1000 individuals. There are also many more inspections conducted at Holiday Acres resort thanks to the Zambons and other helpers. In total we exceeded 400 hours of inspection which ranks our efforts in the top 1 % of all the lakes in Wisconsin according to the Department of National Resources. HATS OFF TO THIS GROUP who helped make that possible. It is uncertain if the grant program will continue through next year so there may be an additional need for member contributions. But for now lets CELEBRATE what's been accomplished here!
