There have been many rumors going around community about security.
The BOD has taken steps to save the community money and still provide coverage to the park.
We have decided to go in house with security.
We will have trained personnel to cover all shifts as we do now.
We have purchased a security vehicle for patrols and all the necessary equipment to operate.
This will co inside with the new gate card system being installed.
Security personnel will not be property owners.
The security division of LACA will be under the control of our property manager as it is now.
The BOD feels we will be able to provide better coverage for less cost.

Everything is quiet at the Lake as the Budget Committee gets to work on next years Budget!  Tickets are being sold for Octoberfest by sending in check to the Office.  More info on the Rec page.

Happy New Year!  



Last night’s talent show was a huge success for all of the contestants. The beaming parents, grandparents and smiles from all who attended make memories that last a life time.
Thanks to our resident stage manager Miss Helen for setting up the practice and coordination of this family event and the community for their support.






8/9/14 CONGRATULATIONS to the LA DOLPHINS for bringing home the GOLD!!!!!!!!


As always the sun gods were in our corner..

From an over cast morning to a beautiful sun filled afternoon with activities and music for everyone climaxing with spectacular fireworks.

LACA DAY was a huge success.

This is not by accident....

Without the dedicated people who voluntarily donate their time and energy; to the LACA staff who work long hours to make this event the high light of the summer, it could never have become a reality.


And as always many of these committees that are in place need volunteers to continue these functions for our families and generations to come.

The Social, Security, Architecture, Memorial, Beautification, all need volunteers.

Today while looking over the many new faces I saw many familiar faces..Faces of the children of years gone by who now have families of their own. Who still call the LAKE their second home. Who still connect to one another as they did decades ago. Knowing that feeling of acceptance and belonging, the feeling of family.

I'm asking you to please follow in the footsteps of past LACA families that have made this community great.

Think about service to the community as a valuable resource to your neighbor’s family and community.

Let’s keep LACA great for our children and all future generations.

Now that the Season is half over, lots should have been groomed at least once. If your grass has not been cut, the maintenance department will do so and you will be billed $100.00. The main drag will be the first area of concern, then the side streets. This is to benefit all. Thanks.

Use of scooters by underaged, unlicensed operators are not allowed on LACA roads.  PA Laws apply on ALL LACA roads.

The Board of Directors has named Ray Fitzgerald as Acting Community Manager.  He will be evaluated after Labor Day at their meeting to see if he will continue and be the permanent Manager.  In the meantime, we will still be reviewing resumes from applicants.





Our property manager Bill Warms has resigned his position effective May 7, 2014.
He will be leaving because of personal hardships and health issues.
Up to this point and time Mr. Warms has proven himself to be an extremely competent and trust worthy employee. We will be relying upon our department heads and of course your BOD to achieve  the goal of running the day to day operation of LACA.
We have placed an ad in numerous publications and will be interviewing for the position.
I am sure we will be able to make a smooth transition with out any difficultly to the community.
Thank you

This year for the first time in LACA history we will not be having a formal mail in ballot.
There were only two applications received for the two open seats.
The two positions that have been filled were by Jim Martin and John Adams.
Donna Grzybowski has decided not to run this year.
I'd like to thank Donna on behalf of the BOD and LACA for all her years of service to the community and a job well done.

Because of the extremely harsh winter and ice cover the electrical work planned for the spring has been put off till the end of our Summer season.
The areas in question are Big Bass and Deer Run.
In order to keep up with the mandated site water meters, laterals and pits by the DEP our energy will be focused on those items so as not to fall behind on our schedule. This is also mandated when our plans were submitted.
The wire has been purchased and on property.
Once we are caught up with mandated water projects we will begin electric.
Again we are sorry for the delay.


I would also like to add that if at all possible to hold off on setting trailers and purchasing of stone by local vendors. Our roads are not hard enough to support heavy trucks as of yet, most properties either have snow or are soft due to the melting snow and of course we just went thru three days of rain. Most communities have adopted this due to the weather until the end of the month.
