HIghland Lakes Newsette


Physical copies of the Newsette are available at the Club Office and the Activities Center, the Lake Wanda Store, the Highland General Store, the Marketplace Deli, and the Highland Lakes US Post Office.

Publication Schedule

The Newsette is published 18 times per year, monthly from October to May excluding January, a special Memorial Day weekend issue, and weekly throughout the summer by the Highland Lakes Country Club and Community Association.

Its first publication in 1949, provided members with information on Club happenings, rules, and news.

That tradition lives on today, both in the traditional print format and online, thanks to the tireless efforts of the Club staff and numerous volunteers.

Writers & contributors

Nearly every article that appears in each issue of the Newsette is written by individual members of our community.

Writers do not receive any compensation for their stories, but the Newsette continues to thrive as a news source for our community through the editorial efforts of individual members, committee chairpersons, Trustees and Officers, and others who contribute articles and information on a regular basis.

Additionally, the Newsette is produced by the Office staff and members of the Communications Committee in conjunction with a local printer.
