Wayne Thompson, one of Star Lake’s most faithful patrons, is shown here at the place he so dearly loved.
As many know, the late Wayne Thompson maintained a beloved tradition for nearly 40 years of feeding the ducks of Star Lake each day. Rain or shine, he came each day at 5 p.m., usually with his three-legged rescue dog in tow.
In memory of Thompson, who passed away in February, and in recognition of his loyalty to the lake and the beautiful ducks who call it home, the Star Lake Garden Club is raising funds to purchase a bench for the lake.
Checks can be written to Star Lake Garden Club. Anyone who makes donations directly to the Club at 1853 Deo Dara Drive will receive a copy of a book written by Thompson’s wife, Eileen.
