Recap: Santa Claus visits Governors Village (2015)

Santa visited the Governors Village neighborhoods on December 12th. The day was warm so Santa left his reindeer at the North Pole and wore his air conditioned suit. The Chatham County Firefighters were kind to arrange for his travel around our neighborhoods.

The Governors Village Social Committee provided hot chocolate at Santa’s stops and Santa dove into his bag of goodies to give each child a candy cane. Santa was welcomed by one and all and even a four legged friend. The children had their opportunity to confess to Santa when they were just a little bit naughty instead of nice. They told Santa what they hoped to find under their tree this Christmas.

After everyone got their treat and took family photos, Santa boarded the fire truck headed for the airport where his helicopter was waiting to take him back to the North Pole. His pilot, Rudolph had everything ready for the flight. Merry Christmas to all!

Santa Claus is coming to Governors Village (2015)

Santa will be arriving in Governors Village in conjunction with the Lighting of the Luminaries on Saturday, December 12th starting in the Forest at approximately 3:00. He’s hitching a ride on a fire truck and driving through each neighborhood stopping to hand out candy canes at the following locations and order:

Forest – at the entrance and Raintree Bend
Village – at the intersection of Fountain Park and Long
Towns – at the intersection of Loop Park and David Stone
Lake – at the top of Wicker and the access road
Park – at the pool parking lot

Parents please be sure your children stay on the sidewalks while the fire truck is in motion. This is very important. Trucks don’t fly like reindeer. The GV Social Committee will also provide hot chocolate at Santa’s stops.

Please be fire safe throughout the year especially during the holidays, and know that Santa and the Chatham County firefighters wish you and yours the very happiest of holiday.

**There is always a chance the fire department will have an emergency and not be able to arrive on time or may have to during the event. Please make sure you keep children close by when you are near the fire truck in case they need to leave in a hurry.
