Last Saturday, a warm August afternoon, the 2016 Governors Village Annual Pool Party was held. The adults and children who attended enjoyed a refreshing dip in the pool and a selection of food catered by NanaTaco, whose vehicle is almost as colorful as their food.
Neighbors contributed with a variety of delightful desserts sharing their culinary expertise or their prowess in knowing where to shop for tasty treats. Most of these dishes contain very few calories (perhaps a minor stretch of the truth).
Food and cash contributions were brought to benefit the Food Bank of Central and Eastern Carolina. Raffle tickets were sold and prizes were awarded to those lucky folks with winning tickets.

Governors Village would like to thank the Social Committee members and their volunteers for the work required to organize, seek donors for the raffle prizes and hold this very enjoyable event. Social Committee chairs Adam and Shannon Novak led the way with help from many, including Linda Kreiter, Diane Talley, Chris Gamber, Rebecca Draper and Mary Anne Hutton.
Residents are encouraged to enjoy using the pool these last few weeks of summer. Since the pool closes at sundown, the gate does not allow entry after 7:45 p.m. The pool season ends September 18, 2016.
