Board Seeks Member Input on LOWA Logo!

Board Seeks Member Input on LOWA Logo By Pat Licata REALTOR


The original logo for the community was designed in 1966, and remains the official logo for the community. In 2012, however, LOW put a new “logo” on the new entrance. Neighbors responded very positively to the new sign logo, and now LOWA is considering making the logo change permanent. If replaced permanently, the old logo would be phased out as to minimize costs. What do you think? Should LOWA have one single approved business logo? If so, which one? The Contemporary logo on the sign, or the classic logo below it in this article? The association urges you to weigh in by e-mailing The board will vote at the meeting February 7th, so make sure your voice is heard!

LOWA Planning, Finance, and M & E Committee Chairs to Address Civic Club

LOW Planning, Finance, and M & E Committee Chairs to Address Civic Club By Pat Licata, President


Please join us on Wednesday, January 14th, at 7pm, in the lower level Clubhouse for our monthly meeting at a new time, new date, and new location! 

Have you thought about joining an Association committee but were unsure of what the committee actually does? Here’s your chance to learn more! Periodically throughout the year, the Civic Club will be featuring LOWA committees so that you have an opportunity to perhaps pique your interest and become involved in one or more.

We are fortunate to have the Chairs of three important committees address the Civic Club in January. They are: Tom Sheridan, Chair of the Planning Committee; Roger Anderson, Chair of the Finance Committee; and Gil Churchill, Chair of the Maintenance and Ecology Committee. Each will make presentations regarding the purpose and scope of his respective committee.

Additionally, Donna Stanton of Enroll Virginia! will be giving an overview of the ACA (Affordable Care Act) health insurance programs and her ability to provide enrollment assistance to LOW residents, even on a 1:1 basis for those in need. The open enrollment ends February 15th. If you know anyone needing help navigating this process, please allow Donna to help!

The BOD is sponsoring a “Coffee and Conversation” at 6pm, hosted by Jim Hutchison and Nigel Goodwin, in the Clubhouse. So why not “make it a night” by dining at the Clubhouse either before or after both meetings? Start the new year with a new or renewed purpose of making a difference in our great community!

As always… It’s another beautiful day at the lake!
