  Mr. THOMPSON of California. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Mr. 
Peter Windrem, who today retires after 45 years of practicing law in 
Lake County, California.
  Throughout his career, Mr. Windrem mentored young lawyers and 
dedicated his time to supporting numerous community organizations. I 
wish him a happy retirement and hope he can spend more time with his 
wife, Kathleen Lyon Windrem; his children, Jessica and Matthew; and his 
grandchildren, Carson, Elliot, Ben, and Ellen.
  Mr. Windrem graduated from Kelseyville High School and Raymond 
College at the University of the Pacific in California, before 
attending law school at the University of Virginia. After completing 
his law degree, Mr. Windrem served with the Peace Corps in Guatemala, 
reflecting his lifelong interest in community service.
  An active citizen of Lake County, California, Mr. Windrem served as a 
key advisor to the Lake County Land Trust at the time of its formation 
in 1999, and continues to provide the group with advice and support to 
this day. He also participated in the successful campaign to designate 
the Berryessa Snow Mountain region as a national monument, and 
spearheaded the efforts to create Konocti County Park and hiking trails 
in Lake County.
  For many years, Mr. Windrem has served on the Sutter Lakeside 
Hospital board and the board for People Services, Inc., a group that 
advocates for and provides services for disabled residents of Lake 
County. He is a founding member of many local organizations, including 
the Lake County Sierra Club, the Lake County Energy Council, and the 
Lake County Vintners.
  Mr. Speaker, throughout his career, Mr. Windrem has generously 
offered his time and energy to support his mentees and staff, as well 
as the needs of Lake County residents. He contributed greatly to the 
legal community of California with his passion, high standards, and 
strong dedication to fairness. Therefore, it is fitting and proper that 
we honor him here today.
