DLA Neighborhood Communicators


 The Deer Lake Association established a team of Neighborhood Communicators who serve as your local source for news and information about the DLA and our activities.  They will also serve as your conduit to the Board for any comments and suggestions you may have for the Association. Neighborhood Communicators will try to meet and welcome new owners as they arrive and help them get acclimated to our area.  Names, neighborhood assignments, and contact information below.
