FOURTEENTH ANNUAL FIREMEN’S FUNDRAISER NARRATIVE – 2019

IMG_4119

The Governors Village 14th Annual Firemen’s Fundraiser was held on Saturday, July 13, 2019.

The day was very warm, but families still came out to support our firemen and to enjoy the bounce house, face painting, water activities, food and ice cream.

Several fire trucks were there, and the firemen conducted an activity where children and some adults could mimic putting out a fire in a burning building. Many fires were put out by the Junior Firemen.

Some children had their faces painted and were pleased with the results. The pictures show some of this art.

The Bounce House was a popular activity. Instead of climbing the wall and sliding down, some adventurous children climbed up the slide and either scaled down the wall or dropped onto the inflated floor.

Food was available from the El Molcajete taco truck and ice cream too was on hand to cool people off.

We must all thank the members of the Social Committee and all other volunteers for arranging, planning and leading this event. We must also thank the men and women of the North Chatham Fire Department for all they do including participating in this annual event.

Please enjoy the pictures of this special day and please consider volunteering to help with next year’s fundraiser.

Governors Village Pool Rules Reminder and Inappropriate Behavior

Dear Neighbors,

We hope that your summer is off to a great start and that you are getting the opportunity to do some fun things.

Now that summer is upon us, the Board wanted to remind everyone of the pool rules.  Please make sure you follow them.  They are posted at the pool.  In light of some recent reports of inappropriate behavior at our community pool, and in the interest of ensuring that everyone’s pool experiences are fun, comfortable, and safe, we write to you in the hope that this brief letter will remind all of our residents of the importance of respecting other people’s privacy and space at the pool.  We also believe that our neighbors should use caution when going to the pool and remain vigilant so that as a community we can help ensure each other’s safety.

Though we recognize that the great majority of our residents have proven to be wonderful neighbors, we feel the need to speak on this point so that the kind of inappropriate behavior observed last week ceases.  Should an owner feel their privacy or safety is being violated, they should report the matter to the police.

The pool has been and should continue to be a place where everyone comes together for a wholesome, fun, and relaxing experience.

We also encourage that any suspicious and/or inappropriate behaviors such as this be reported to the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office at (919) 542-2811 so that there may be a record of this moving forward and so that guilty parties may know that our community is watchful and intolerant of this kind of behavior. Of course, if an imminent threat exists, call 911.

Thank you for your time and attention to this issue. We wish you a wonderful rest of your week and a lovely summer.

Sincerely,

The Governors Village POA Board
