Pool Opening, Firemen’s 5K, and Pancake Breakfast

Saturday, May 11, 2013 | Governors Village Pool

Join us for the pool opening and 8th Annual Firemen’s 5K Run/Walk & Pancake Breakfast to benefit the North Chatham Fire Department! Last year, the North Chatham Fire Department was able to acquire a sonar unit for their Rescue Boat and an additional defibrillator with the amount raised at the Pancake Breakfast.  We were able to raise over $3100.00 last year so let’s make 2013 an even better year! Read on for further details and event registration (advance registration sincerely appreciated!).
