LakeTalk, the LLA 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. It is emailed each month to every resident with an email address on file.

LakeTalk Special Edition

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 Lake Linganore 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 the community 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 provided every September. The reference publication is intended to assist and guide Members throughout the upcoming year.


The editor encourages all LLA Members to submit writing pieces for consideration. All prospective contributors must submit their content by 9 am on the 5th of every month. Please note that your submission will be printed in the subsequent issue (i.e., March 5th submissions will print in April’s LakeTalk). Time and space constraints will determine the inclusion of approved 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. A past issue directory is located in the Member Portal.
