The Lac Du Flambeau Town Lakes Committee held its first meeting of the season on April 17. The elected officers for 2013 are Roberta Gast, chairperson; Dennis Gathmann, vice chairperson; Brian Hoover, secretary; and Norm Wetzel, treasurer.
In anticipation of the lake ice going away, the Committee is looking for volunteers to help with the Clean Boats, Clean Water program at local boat landings. Those interested in helping maintain the quality of lakes by monitoring boat landings may contact Kris LaMarche at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The committee is also looking for volunteers to help manage the infestations of purple loosestrife. Anyone interested in helping with this project may contact Roberta Gast at email@example.com or (715) 356-5550.
A lake steward workshop will be held Aug. 7 at the Lake of the Torches Resort Casino. This is open to anyone interested in learning about maintaining the quality of surrounding lakes, aquatic plant identification and other lake-related issues. Contact Roberta Gast for more information.
The Town Lakes Committee meetings are held the third Wednesday of the month at 10 a.m. in the Lac Du Flambeau Town Hall and are open to all who are interested in attending.
