On June 18, 2015, Trent Leonard, Recreation Committee chair, announced ADT has installed a new security camera system at the Governors Village pool. All entrances and the entire fence line are covered by four cameras that are installed and recording 24/7, 7 days a week.

If someone enters the pool after hours by hopping the fence or gate, they will be recorded and pool privileges can be revoked for the remainder of the season. Residents are encouraged  to advise anyone who might be tempted to enter the pool after hours about the new security measures.

The pool opened May 9 and will remain open through September 20, 2015. The Pool Brochure provides more information on using the pool amenities and rules for staying safe. Enjoy the rest of the pool season!

New grill has been installed at the pool

A message from the Governors Village Recreation Committee

After a month delay, the new grill install was completed today at the pool. The highlights:

  • There is an infrared burner with a cover which you must remove if you use this burner. This burner is VERY hot. If you have never used infrared before, perhaps you don’t use it on your first grill meal at the pool
  • The grill has lights on it for seeing your food
  • The gas valve in the back has a timer on it
  • The lighting mechanism works now. No more need for a lighting wand
  • Happy grilling!

Recap: Tenth Annual Firemen’s Pancake Breakfast, 5K Run/Walk, and Kids Triathlon

Thanks to Ted Smith for contributing these photos and narrative

The Governors Village 10th Annual Firemen’s 5K Run/Walk & Pancake Breakfast was held on Saturday, May 16, 2015. With the cooperation of the weather, it was a great day for a race. Whether you ran or cheered the runners, it was fun for all. Also on hand was a full size mascot named Sparky. Sparky encouraged the runners and joined them at the start of the race. The runners had broad smiles as they celebrated their accomplishment crossing the finish line. Each participant was presented with a collectors T-Shirt. After the run, everyone enjoyed a pancake breakfast, prepared by our Social Committee and served by the Firemen and Firewomen of the Fire Department.

Following the pancake breakfast, the Kids Triathlon started. The participants were to run around the tennis court, bicycle around a course and lastly dive into the pool to swim. After everyone finished, prizes were awarded and everyone either stayed at the pool or left to begin any remaining weekend activities.

We must all thank the members of the Social Committee members and the other volunteers for doing so well with the challenging tasks of planning and leading this event. It was without question a great success. Please enjoy the pictures of this special day.
