Thank Goodness It’s Saturday (or TGIS) is a Governors Village institution. Soon after the community was developed neighbors began hosting informal get-togethers in their homes so residents could meet one another and have a way to maintain those contacts.
In 2015 the tradition continues. TGIS is now sponsored by the Social Committee with Jenny O’Brien serving as coordinator.
These events are generally on Saturday night beginning at 7:00pm and are for adults only. Sometimes Friday works better for the hosts. Also at the hosts’ discretion children may be included.
Jenny has just announced the tentative 2015-2016 Schedule and is seeking volunteers:
It is already August (wow!) so it is time to start thinking about the Fall TGIS calendar. I have listed the tentative dates below (we can always shift a week either way) and I am looking volunteers to host. The host responsibilities include providing name tags and paper products, and the guests provide the appetizers/dessert and a beverage to share. We already have hosts for September (thank you Val & Rob).
If you would like host please send an email to and I will add you to our schedule. Thanks!
