Lake Tansi getting ready for spring activities

CROSSVILLE — Spring is here. It is time to start looking forward to a new and exciting year here at Lake Tansi. As you are aware, we have a new Recreation Director, Betty Gates. Betty has some outstanding new ideas and programs she is going to introduce that are going to be a great asset to our community and our guests who visit this year. Be watching the Smoke Signals and email blasts for new upcoming events.

The maintenance and golf course crews are wrapping up their winter projects and gearing up for the season. Aerifying the greens and fairways will be April 2 – 3, pray for warm weather.

The Marina will be opening on April 4. I would like to thank each and everyone who donated money, making it possible to restock the lake this year. As of now there will be 3,000 blue gill and 3,000 shell crackers added. This will take place in  mid-to-late April.

Once again, the Quack Shack will be reopening this year. Sheere and her crew are getting ready with some great activities, movie nights, and Thursday night dinners with live music. So get ready to come and have a great time at the beach.

As you know, we have a 1.5 mile walking trail; if you would like to volunteer, you are welcome to come and help me spread wood chips. This hasn’t been done for a couple of years. It would be greatly appreciated. Just call the POA Office at 788-6721. I would like to do this by the end of April.

We are going to have our first event Memorial Day weekend with a Cruise In, Arts and Craft Show, live music and lots of activities for young and old. Come out and spend the holiday weekend with us.
