The New LAHA Website

We hope you find the new website enjoyable and informative. In the future, we will use this site to keep all area residents updated on activities of the association and on new community developments or news. Members will also receive quarterly e-mails with additional information and special discounts from local businesses.

This change was triggered by our desire for more frequent communication with you and the ever-escalating costs of postage. In addition, the site has been structured to encourage all of our members to interact and comment on issues important to them and the area. Issues that too often don't have sufficient time to air in quarterly meetings.

Please spend some time familiarizing yourself with the site. Practice making a comment to a recent blog post. Check out the label tags or other valuable site links. Send us an email telling us what you think. Try out the hyperlinks sprinkled throughout. For the more sophisticated, you can even subscribe to an RSS feed which, I think, notifies you when new content is posted (or something like that).

We are also hoping to gather some of the best lake photos you've taken over the years, feature one new one each month on our home page, and post the rest in the "Around the Lake" online gallery (a link is located on the left side of the home page). Simply email your photos to (include a possible caption, names of those pictured and the photographer, and the date of the photo).

If you have any suggestions on the website or what you would like to see featured, let us know. We look forward to your feedback.

*For our members who still wish to receive hard copy communication from us, we will print out and hand-deliver hard copies of the site content upon request.
