New Year, New Forms of Communication

With each new year brings new beginnings. And this year is no exception for the Angle Lake Shore Club.  We are currently in the process of retiring some former communication formats in the interest of introducing new communication platforms to keep our community better informed and to encourage greater interaction between Shore Club members and neighbors.

We've recently launched our new Facebook Organization Page to replace the previous individually administered Person Page.  The significance for this change is that this will allow community members to ‘Like’ the organization page versus having to become a friend on the person page. This will enabling them to be notified of upcoming Shore Club events and by accept invites will enable calendar features such as event reminders.  

If you use Facebook, we hope you that you’ll ‘Like’ our new page.

We’ll also be decommissioning the ALSC Community Forum link on the Blog Site in favor of introducing a new social platform hosted by where authenticated neighbors can meet, greet and exchange information in a more secure online environment. 

What is Nextdoor?

Nextdoor is the private social network for you, your neighbors and your community. It's the easiest way for you and your neighbors to talk online and make all of your lives better in the real world.  And it's free! Thousands of neighborhoods are already using Nextdoor to build happier, safer places to call home.

People are using Nextdoor to:
  • Quickly get the word out about a break-in
  • Organize a Neighborhood Watch Group
  • Track down a trustworthy babysitter
  • Find out who does the best paint job in town
  • Ask for help keeping an eye out for a lost dog
  • Find a new home for an outgrown bike
  • Finally call that nice man down the street by his first name
We believe that a neighborhood is one of the most important and useful communities in a person's life and Nextdoor's mission is to bring back a sense of community to the neighborhood.

The online community has the potential of reaching 496 households within our immediate area!  You can obtain further detail at the information page, or if you’re ready you can dive right in by clicking on the Angle Lake invitation page.
