A long-standing tradition in the Governors Village community, TGIS is a monthly get-together where hosts provide the name tags and paper products and guests bring a beverage and appetizer to share. TGIS is typically for adults only, but the hosts can elect to make one a kid-friendly evening. Hosting a TGIS can be a simple way to entertain and attending each month is a fun way to be in touch with neighbors. These gatherings serve to help residents keep up with friends and to meet new members of the community.

Scenes From 2014 Governors Village Annual Pool Party

A mid-afternoon downpour may have got the 2014 Governors Village Pool Party off to a slower start than usual, but the fun and festivities soon caught up. Dark clouds dissipated, the sun shone and cheerful residents gathered for the community’s annual tribute to the end of summer.

Just inside the pool entrance members of the Social Committee greeted everyone at the check-in table. Nearby, food and monetary donations were collected on behalf of the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.
