Governors Village Easter Egg Hunt – 2015

The annual Governors Village Easter Egg Hunt was held on March 28, 2015. The day while chilly, was nice with lots of sun. There were games with the Easter Bunny who Bunny Hopped all over. We are extremely fortunate to have a homeowner who is a professional librarian, Mary Shaver. She delighted both children and adults with her story telling. Some of the children participated in the telling of one of the tales. Deputies from the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office held a Bicycle Rodeo demonstrating proper equipment and road safety rules. Children were given helmets and shown how to correctly wear them to provide the most protection.

The Easter Egg hunt came next with eggs scattered throughout the meadow park. The children collected as many as they could and turned them in for candy and cupcakes. The selection of cupcakes was very enticing making it difficult to choose. After all had their fill, they returned home with happy memories.

Our thanks to the members of the Social Committee for the time and energy they put into this successful event. We also must thank the Easter Bunny for his (or her?) taking part in this occasion. We thank the Deputies from The Sheriff’s Office too.

2015 Pool Rules Approved, Brochure Available

The 2015 Pool Rules were approved last night (March 19, 2015) by the POA Board of Directors. Please note this version of the brochure supersedes an earlier one posted on March 2, 2015.

The 2015 Pool Season for Governors Village runs May 9 – September 20, 2015.

The Recreation Committee has updated the pool brochure for 2015. It covers the basic operating and contact information, fully describes the rules and discusses swimming lessons.

Swiping one’s card to enter the pool confirms the acknowledgment that the resident has read the rules and will adhere to them.

Printed copies will not be distributed to residents this year. Instead as a cost and time-saving measure, the committee decided to distribute the brochure through the community website this year. The rules will also be available at the pool when the season opens.
