New Board Members for Twin Lakes Community

Each year we welcome new board members at Twin Lakes, and this year we are delighted to welcome Ned Cline, a Twin Lakes resident and retired journalist and biographer; and Melanie Thomas, a quality management director with Freedom House Recovery Center in Chapel Hill.  

Our board selection process involves a careful consideration of the mix of credentials and backgrounds that is necessary for the board to function well, and the success of our organization is a reflection of this deliberate approach.

For a complete list and biographies of all board members, click on the Welcome Home tab on our website, then click Leadership/Board.

Lanes of Light

Lanes of Light 2018  was a tremendous success! Through our community's efforts and the broader community's support, 26.5 TONS of food was donated to The Salvation Army food ministries. Lanes of Light is an award-winning mile-long drive through Twin Lakes Community dressed in holiday style. Through the joint efforts of our staff and residents, our 215 acre campus is transformed into a winter wonderland filled with festive fun. Dozens of illuminated trees, a sixty-foot sea serpent, and other holiday designs create a beautiful reflection as they float on our lakes. A larger-than-life Toyland with a live jack-in-the-box is the delight of children young and old. Those displays as well as all other wooden designs are the creation of our resident woodworkers and artists. Additional displays are designed and created each year. Santa, Mrs. Claus, The Grinch, and Frosty the Snowman are always dressed in full holiday attire to greet visitors. And, the favorite of all visitors is the residents of Twin Lakes who enthusiastically stand at their court entrances wishing every visitor a Merry Christmas! Requested admission is canned food or a monetary donation for the benefit of The Salvation Army food pantries. Through Lanes of Light, a true labor of love, over 245 tons of food has been given to local food ministries. Please join us for Lanes of Light 2019, December 7th and 8th, 2019!
