    Hosts of children chaperoned by their parents and grandparents came out to participate in the annual Lake Tansi Easter Egg Hunt on April 19 at the Thunderbird Recreation Center. School aged children carrying Easter bags, buckets, baskets, and even galvanized pails, came out to exercise their egg hunting skills. The younger children were given an easier terrain to hunt and the older children were set to hunt the putt putt course for eggs.

  • 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.
