  • An independence celebration to remember

    There was no event left out and not one person who couldn’t be entertained as Lake Tansi created a weekend long soirée to celebrate Independence Day this year. The large crowd of visitors provided ample participation for friendly competitions in ping pong, horseshoes, mini golf, shuffleboard, badminton, sack races, sandcastle building, and pie eating. While Perfect Party Rentals’ bouncy houses juggled little children, the beach accommodated sun-loving families and friends, and the car show brought dozens of classic and souped-up coups for the crowds to peruse.

  • POA looks to end year ahead of budget

    This summer has been outstanding here at Lake Tansi. It is a great time of year to live in and visit our wonderful resort. Our lakes have been busy. The cabins, golf course and Recreation Department have been running full bore, as well, with many activities. Our 4th of July weekend was the best we had in years – thanks to the weather – from the Cruise-in, music and movies at the beach, right down to the pie-eating contest and all the other activities held. Next year will be bigger and better yet.

  • LT Police Cruiser.jpg Security upgrades patrol vehicle

    The Lake Tansi Department of Security and Law Enforcement has acquired a replacement patrol vehicle. It is a 2008 Chevrolet Trail Blazer with 46,500 miles. It is replacing a 2001 Chevrolet Impala with approximately 250,000 miles. The new patrol vehicle will be placed in service as soon as it is fitted with the necessary safety and emergency equipment.  It is being equipped by On Duty Depot in Knoxville, TN. The Trail Blazer is
    better suited for service in the Tansi Community than the vehicle it is replacing because it has available four wheel drive which will enable officers to respond in inclement weather.
