2013 Lake Tansi phone book issued

CROSSVILLE — The 2013 Lake Tansi phone directory was delivered to all resident mailboxes in late November. Copies are also available at the Lake Tansi POA office. The phone book, updated annually, is published and distributed as a community service project of the Lake Tansi Exchange Club. The blue pages, in the front of the book, contain vital information for Tansi residents, including emergency contacts, local medical and service agencies, and contact numbers for all Lake Tansi activities and clubs.

Exchange Club members also maintain the database of Tansi residents for the white pages and solicit ads from local merchants and service providers for the advertising section. Thirty-three club members devoted their time and energy canvassing Cumberland County and beyond to generate the 194 ads appearing in the 2013 phone book. Net proceeds from the sale of advertising help fund Cumberland County child abuse prevention programs through the Holland J. Stephen’s Center as well as providing support for other local public service organizations, the principal charitable goals of the Lake Tansi Exchange Club.

Special thanks are due club member Larry Robertson, who designed the 2013 directory cover depicting Fourth of July fireworks and the Lake Tansi Exchange Club’s annual chicken and pork BBQ fundraiser.

The directory reflects another year of growth for the Lake Tansi community over the previous year. New residents are added to the database as the information is made available by our POA office. Tansi residents not currently in the directory or who wish to make changes to their entries are invited to contact the co-chairs of the Phone Book Committee, Les and Judi Elam at 788-1300 or at laelam@frontiernet.net.

Support Our Advertisers

The businesses and professionals who advertise in the yellow pages recognize that the Lake Tansi community is a valued source of business. The Exchange Club encourages you to patronize our

advertisers. When you do, tell them that you saw their ad in the Lake Tansi phone book.

Residents and time-share visitors can enhance their local shopping experience by using the “Crossville Treasure Trail,” a two-page spread at the beginning of the yellow pages featuring a map of the area identifying advertisers specializing in antiques, gifts and collectibles.

New Members Welcome

The Lake Tansi Exchange Club was organized in 1986 and today has over 70 active members. Breakfast meetings are held on the first and third Friday of each month at our Hiawatha Community Center at 8 a.m. We invite all Lake Tansi residents to join us in our efforts to give back to our community. If interested, come as a guest of a member you know or call the club president, John Sohmer, at 788-2735, and he will be pleased to answer your questions and introduce you to the club.

In addition to the phone book project, the Exchange Club sponsors several other Tansi-based events to entertain the community and raise funds for our charitable activities. Principal activities include the Exchange Club golf tournament at the Lake Tansi course in late spring; our Fourth of July BBQ; and the “One Nation Under God” Veterans Day recognition in November. And each month, the Club’s “Road Gang,” led by John Sohmer, picks up the accumulated trash along the two-mile stretch of Dunbar Road extending from the Brown School to War Eagle Drive.

  • Welcome 1.jpg Lake Tansi welcomes new recreation director

    A lot of people have visited Cumberland County, liked what they saw and eventually bought a house. Can Betty Gates be included in that group? Well, yes and no.  She came to Cumberland County to visit her brother who had retired from the United States Air Force. He took her on a tour of the area, including a drive through Tansi on Dunbar Rd. One of his neighbors, a real estate agent, also took her on a tour where he showed her a number of houses, one of which she bought. It was just two days after she arrived at her brother’s house. Here’s how she described the moment: “I have landed on my mountain.”  That was near the end of 2008.

  • navy nurse 4.jpg Duty Station: The heart of a Navy nurse

    Joann Kelso’s nursing career began when she went to nursing school on a grant in Cleveland, Ohio. The grant allowed her to acquire her degree but, in return, she was obligated to work in Cleveland for two years. By this time her friends were settling down, getting married, and having babies. Kelso decided that wasn’t what she wanted at that time and enlisted in the Navy.
