Fondy Five - Clean Water informational
Published: May 29, 2015
The "Fondy Five," a leadership team from the Fond du Lac Association of Commerce Leadership Program under
the guidance of Lesley Manowske, chose to help a local non-profit organization fulfill its mission. The
team selected the Lake Winnebago Quality Improvement Association of FdL County. Among other things, the
team developed and printed brochures to educate people about the importance of preventing polluted runoff
as well as best practices they can use to reduce it.
This video is from a project developed by FondyFive, an Association of Commerce Leadership Program Team, to raise
awareness and prevent polluted runoff from entering Lake Winnebago.

New Receptacles Help Fishermen Recycle Unwanted Line
Published: August 20, 2013
Chris Anderson and Matthew Dudarenke install a receptacle at Lakeside Park West.
People fishing on Lake Winnebago now have an easy way to dispose of old or unwanted fishing line. Ten fish line receptacles have been placed around the southern end of the lake in an effort to keep the lake clean and safe for wildlife and people using it.
Chris Anderson designed the receptacles from PVC pipe donated by JF Ahern as part of his Eagle Scout project. Fellow scouts from Troop 705 of North Fond du Lac helped with the construction and installation. The project was sponsored by the Lake Winnebago Quality Improvement Association.
Fishing line, or monofilament, is typically non-degradable and lasts about 600 years. Abandoned fishing line injures or kills fish, birds and other wildlife.
Collection bins are located at the following launch sites:
Hwy 45 Wayside
(3) at Lakeside Park West (Supple Marsh)
(2) at Lakeside Park East
Columbia Park in Calumet
Fisherman's Road in Taycheedah
Chris discusses the placement of labels with Larry Kent.
Chris Anderson is joined by fellow Scouts to work on his
Eagle Scout project, including (from left) John Fuchs,
Matthew Dudarenke, Mike Fuchs, Jordon Friend, Kurt Weir,
and Patrick Weir. The Scouts are from Troop 705 of North
Fond du Lac.
