Orientation Sessions Planned for New Lake Panorama Owners

By Susan Thompson 

The Lake Panorama community changes each month, with people who have been here for a few years, or a few decades, selling their property. New people buy that property, and then find themselves with lots of questions. 

Last year, a few people who have been through this process started to think there should be an organized way to welcome new property owners to Lake Panorama. The result is a new program titled “Lake Panorama 101.”
