The Governors Village 2018 BooFest was held on Sunday, October 21, 2018.
It was a great day to be outdoors. The event was very well attended and everyone, especially the children had great fun. The bouncy house was very popular. The boys and girls could not seem to tire of climbing up, sliding down and going around to do it all over again.
The face painting was also very popular with people waiting on line to be treated to the artistic talents of the painter. An imaginative game of tic-tac-toe was played using small pumpkins and apples instead of X’s and O’s. The new playground equipment was put to good use as was the basketball court and the tennis courts.
A parade of children and adults went around by the playground area to the enjoyment of both those parading and those looking on.
The two food trucks arrived and after they were setup, people enjoyed the delights of A Merry Frankster and El Molcajete Tacos. Ice cream dessert was provided by Ben and Jerry’s. The two attendants were kept busy dishing out ice cream treats.
A table was set up on the basketball court for donations to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.
We must thank the members of the Social Committee and all other volunteers for making this such a successful event. Please consider volunteering to help with future events. Remember: Many hands make light work. Plus, you will feel good for contributing your time and talents.
The Communications Committee hopes that you enjoy the pictures of this special day. (All pictures taken by Ted Smith)
BooFest is THIS SUNDAY OCTOBER 21st!! Please note the day change from Saturday due to weather.
We are grateful ALL our vendors will still be able to participate! Come out starting at 4 for games, activities, fairy hair and face painting. Parade will be starting at 4:30. Food and ice cream (FREE Ben & Jerry’s!) will be ready to serve starting at 5.
We will also be collecting food and money donations for the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC. The food banks could use some extra love and help after the hurricanes we have had this fall.
Lastly, we are excited to announce we will have composting bins on site to help decrease our waste! Microflora Garden Co. will be collecting our food scraps to convert into healthy soil. Please look out for the bins!
Leda Werrell and the Social Committee
Due to what looks like will be a very rainy Saturday, we are going to change BooFest to THIS SUNDAY OCTOBER 21st @ 4 pm.
We are finalizing the details for BooFest for THIS SATURDAY OCTOBER 20th starting at 4pm at the Park Playground area!
We are in need of a few volunteers for our craft table to help children create pumpkins, ghosts and more. We need help from 4-6 pm and would be so grateful if anyone is available for an hour or two. This would be great for a couple of teenagers or resident that doesn’t have small children to run after.
Thank you so much for your consideration to help make this community event great!
The September Board of Directors meeting has been rescheduled for Tuesday, October 16 at 6 PM.
Due to weather concerns the pool party is being cancelled. Everyone stay safe during the storm. We hope to come up with an alternative plan soon.
It looks like Hurricane Florence has its eye on North Carolina and now is the time to prepare. First, we want to say that we hope everyone stays safe and hopefully we make it through this storm with minimal damage in our area. Please be sure to review the Hurricane Preparedness links and information provided below.
Tie down or safely store anything that is outside your home that could be picked up by the wind, become a projectile and cause damage to your home or your neighbors’ home (garbage cans, outdoor furniture, trampolines, plant pots and outdoor decorations).
Ensure that all vehicles are fueled and parked inside the garage.
Be sure to have needed water and food supplies for pets and family members, and fill up on all medications.
Have a flashlight and extra batteries within reach.
Keep a battery-powered radio handy (if you have one), WRAL (FM: 101.5) or WPTF (AM: 680) will be good news sources.
Charge smartphones, cell phones, power packs and tablets.
Most fatalities in a storm come from flooding – people getting swept away. So if you see water across the road, the State suggests “turn around, don’t drown” – pick a different route.
If you have a roof leak or water entering your property, please take steps to clean, catch or block the water.
In case of Emergency:
- If you have a medical emergency or fire, please call 911.
- If you experience a power outage, please contact your utility company.
- If you have any catastrophic damages to your home and property, please contact your insurance provider.
- If you have an emergency for your Association, please call Towne Properties at 919-878-8787 and press 3 when prompted.
- If a tree falls on common ground that is causing an immediate threat, please contact the emergency line. If there is not an immediate threat, please contact your Management Team after the storm has cleared.
Please note that with a storm this size, clean-up could take a while, weeks even, depending on severity. We ask for your patience, as we work with our business partners to get your community back in order and keep the team safe.
We hope all homeowners and their families stay safe during this storm.
Your Towne Properties Management Team
