LakeTalk

Lake Linganore Association’s Official Monthly Newsletter

LakeTalk, the Eaglehead monthly community publication, was started in February 1996 as a way for the Lake Linganore Association (LLA) Board of Directors to communicate important issues to the Membership. LakeTalk is the official notification publication of the Lake Linganore Association and is considered a membership service.

All prospective contributors must submit their content by 9:00am on the 5th of every month.  Please note that your submission will be printed in the subsequent issue (eg. March 5th submissions will print in April’s LakeTalk).  Time and space constraints will determine the inclusion of submitted items.  In high volume situations, submitted items will be honored on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis.  All content received after the 5th of every month cannot be guaranteed space in LakeTalk.  Late submissions will be published as time and space permits.  The LLA Office is not required to publish all submissions and may use discretion when evaluating items for print.

eLakeTalk: The Digital Format

eLakeTalk is a great alternative for LLA Members with busy schedules or multiple residences. eLakeTalk is environmentally friendly and provides a more interactive experience for readers. LLA’s hosting tool allows readers to download a PDF of the publication or print pages free of charge. If you would like to receive eLakeTalk in lieu of a hard copy, please login to your online Membership Account and change your account preferences. Please note that it may take up to 60 days for this change to be reflected in the print cycle.

LakeTalk Special Edition

Information & Advertising

The Lake Linganore community is a very large enterprise composed of many entities. Residents, builders, contractors, community groups and the Association are all working to improve the standards of living in Linganore. Living in Eaglehead brings many privileges and carries many responsibilities. As the HOA, Lake Linganore Association is always working to achieve greater understanding amongst those who live, work and play in the community. Peaceful coexistence is not without its challenges, however becoming educated about the role of the HOA and other parties active in Eaglehead builds mutual understanding and fosters success.

To educate community members on an annual basis, the Association produces a Special Edition of LakeTalk. The Special Edition is meant to serve as a primary resource for Association information and is introduced in every September. The reference publication is intended to assist and guide Members throughout the upcoming year.
