Easter Egg Hunt


The annual Governor’s village Easter Egg hunt was on Saturday March 24th. We had a great turn out despite the chilly weather and the kids had a great time doing Yoga with Marney and having story time with Mary.


The Hunt itself was a big success. There were brightly colored eggs everywhere and an appearance by the Easter bunny! The kids seemed to really enjoy finding the eggs and trading them for some treats. I know some of the adults enjoyed the treats as well. A Big thanks to Allie, Leda and the social committee and volunteers.


Turf Treatment week of April 9

The landscaping company will be in the neighborhoods next week treating turf areas. They will not be treating the playground areas at the Fountain Park and in the Governors Park.

The crew will be doing a blanket spray on the turf with Dimension which is a weed pre- emergent and Trimec So. which is a broadleaf weed killer. They will also be applying a liquid fertilizer on the warm season turf.

We hope this helps plan your days accordingly.

Turf Treatment

This is a friendly update for upcoming turf treatment beginning next week in the neighborhoods. Please see below for details.

The first round of turf treatment at Governor’s Village will begin next week. This treatment contains a granular fertilizer for Fescue, and blanket weed-control applications for fescue and Bermuda grass turf areas. It will likely take 4-5 days. The products to be used are…

FESCUE: 24-4-16 fertilizer, Barricade 4FL (prodiamine) pre-emergent, Cool Power weed control

FOUNTAIN PARK FESCUE: 24-4-16 fertilizer (granular) will be applied

BERMUDA: Dimension 2EW pre-emergent, Change Up and Simizine weed control

Our plan is to complete treatments around townhomes first and then around roadsides/medians.

The Towne homes are estimated to be Monday and Tuesday and wrapping up either later Tuesday or Wednesday and the rest of the common areas and roadsides would be the Remainder of Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

As it stands now the area around the pool and tennis courts and fountain park will not receive any of these liquid pre-emergent treatments. Fountain Park will only receive a granular turf fertilizer.

Santa’s Visit To Governors Village 2017

Photos and narrative courtesy Ted Smith.

On the bright, sunshiny afternoon of December 16, 2017 Santa visited the Governors Village neighborhoods on his way back to his North Pole workshop. His reindeer were being well cared for by the Chatham County Firefighters as they drove him around in their fire truck giving the reindeer including Rudolph a well deserved rest.

The Governors Village Social Committee arranged for this visit and Santa brought lots of candy canes for everyone. Children of all ages came out to welcome Santa and the children were able to let him know the gift they really, really wanted this Christmas. The children said they were never naughty always very well behaved. Santa listened to their wishes and gave each boy and girl a candy cane made by Mrs. Claus. Even a couple of four-legged friends came to see Santa.


At each neighborhood parents were able to take family photos before Santa had to leave to head North. His sleigh and reindeer were at the firehouse all ready for the trip back.

Merry Christmas to all and may all your sweet dreams come true.
