We had our Lake Thompson Association (LTA) Christmas Party this last Dec. 2 at Holiday Acres Resort.  There were 26 attending.  Social hour was great with wonderful tasting appetizers to sample.  We had a wonderful meal and an out of this world dessert!  I won’t tell you what it was, so you’ll just have to come next year.  We also collected nonperishable food for the Rhinelander Food Pantry.

We have some sad news to report that Bob Haskins of Woodstock, IL, and Jean Kilbane of Rhinelander, passed away this last Fall.
Paul Schreiber gave us some news about our lake’s weed condition.  So far we are okay without any of the bad weeds in our lake.  A BIG thanks to our boys that watch the boat landing!  Paul also announced that we received our grant money from the DNR for our AIS programPlease see reverse for a further message from Paul.
A LTA board meeting was held to discuss events for 2017, which included mailing of the ice-out and dues notice.  Please see the enclosed form to be completed:

  Also, please see this year’s LTA event dates on the reverse.  More to follow later.
For those of you traveling to warmer climates this Winter, we wish you safe travels and look forward to seeing you when you return.  For everyone else who stays on the lake, we are hoping for lots of snow and good ice to enjoy Winter sports and activities.
If you have any news to be mentioned, please let us know for the next newsletter.  Thanks.

A message from Paul Schreiber, Vice President /Aquatic Invasive Species  (AIS) Director,  Lake Thompson Association:

Greetings to our lake association members!  As we enter into the new year, our lake association will continue to be fully committed to the fight against Aquatic Invasive Species entering our lake.   Although Lake Thompson currently remains free of invasive plants such as Asian Water Milfoil, we continue to see rapid expansion of invasive plants and species throughout northern Wisconsin lakes.  These harmful invasive plants are not only harmful to ecosystems of lakes and rivers but also can have a potentially negative impact on lake property values.

As we approach the 2017 boating season, we will once again implement our
“Clean Boats/Clean Waters” program.  The core initiative of  the program will concentrate on boat inspections at our public boat landing.  We feel incoming boat inspections is the best ‘front line’ defense against invasive species entering into our waters.  Last season, our junior conservation officers registered 400 plus hours of boat inspections ranking Lake Thompson in the top 1% of all Wisconsin lakes.
We thank all of our association members for their continuing support in our lake management efforts.  Through your lake membership association fees, we are able to continue with our Clean Boat/Clean Waters program. 

Best Wishes in 2017!
Paul E. Schreiber
