Lanes of Light

Lanes of Light 2017  was a tremendous success! Through our community's efforts and the broader community's support, nearly 33 TONS of food was donated to Allied Churches of Alamance County and 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 210 acre campus is transformed into a winter wonderland filled with festive fun. Dozens of illuminated trees, a sixty-foot sea serpent, an animated paddleboat 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 Allied Churches of Alamance County and the Salvation Army food pantries. Through Lanes of Light, a true labor of love, over 183 tons of food has been given to local food ministries. Please join us for Lanes of Light 2018, December 1st and 2nd, 2018!

Best Places to Work

Triad Business Journal has announced Twin Lakes Community received second place honors from a 12-county area in their annual Best Places to Work awards competition. Winners were determined through a scientific survey of employees administered by a third-party research firm. Twin Lakes was placed in the extra-large category (over 300 employees) which included much larger for-profit corporations. The survey asked 50 questions of employees, evaluating their employer on points designed to measure 10 key engagement categories focusing on items such as team effectiveness, trust in senior leaders, feeling valued, manager effectiveness, compensation and benefits. This honored distinction confirms Twin Lakes truly is a wonderful place to live and work.
