Others to look forward to include "Loch Erin Marketplace".... FSBO is currently a popular way to quickly sell your items neighbor to neighbor on the community forum. This page will soon be repurposed and a new "Member Contractor/Services" recommendations page; also a very popular way to currently use the community forum will be added. Already available, is a streamlined Home Page and a new "Who ya gonna call" contact page with specific LEPOA contact information that will immediately direct your inquiry to the proper person for resolution.
