GOVERNORS VILLAGE ANNUAL POOL PARTY NARRATIVE – 2022

This years Pool Party was a multi-event. Besides the Pool Party, we had Bullock’s BBQ and a Porch/CORA Fill-The- Truck Collection.

By all accounts, it was a successful day. People of all ages enjoyed the pool, feasted on Barbeque and helped fill the CORA truck.

CORA offered a raffle ticket to anyone who brought a donation. The winner was Dave Powell. Congratulations Dave!

The food catered by Bullock’s included pulled pork, chicken, potato salad, baked beans and rolls. There was lemonade, iced tea and water to cool ourselves from the warm weather. The diners who came back for seconds are proof of just how good the food tasted. There was plenty to eat and even leftovers to bring home.

Bullock’s was very attentive, replacing empty trays with full ones and serving the drinks.

We must thank the Social Committee members and their cadre of volunteers for the work required to prepare, organize and run this event.

Please don’t forget these upcoming events:

October 22 – BooFest at the Pool Parking Lot

November 24 – Turkey Trot

December 17 – Santa Visit, House Decorating Contest and Luminaries

Homeowners show the strength of our community by participating in these events. Please mark your calendars so they won’t be forgotten.
