17th Annual Governors Village Luminary Night December 17, 2017

Updated November 17. We now have a coordinator for Governors Lake.  Cathie Heck (12008 Wicker Drive). Still need volunteer to coordinator the Governors Village Townes.

Tim Watkins recently provided information about the annual Luminary Night.

Hello Neighbors – I am sending this message to provide additional details about the 17th Annual Governors Village Luminary Night to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill.

This year’s event will take place on Saturday, December 16th, with a rain date of Sunday, December 17, 2017. For this event to be possible, we need coordinators for each area of our neighborhood. This year, we are in need of a coordinator for Governors Lake. If you are interested in serving as the coordinator for this area of our community, please contact me either via email (thwatkinsnc@gmail.com) or phone (919-969-9840). The coordinators for the Village, Forest, and Park are as follows:

Governors Village – Grace Harris (10044 Fountain)
Governors Forest – Ann White (10026 Hammock Bend)
Governors Park – Tim and Melissa Watkins (30077 Britt)

Our area coordinators will be accepting donations and coordinating the event for their area. In addition to donations for the Ronald McDonald House, there are other ways you can help out with this event, including preparing luminaries, setting them out, lighting them, and/or cleaning up. If you are interested in helping out, please contact your area coordinator (for now, neighbors in Governors Lake can contact me). Be on the look out for a flier in your mail soon after Thanksgiving.

Thanks very much and Happy Thanksgiving!
