OPERATION EASTER BUNNY – 2021

Again this year, Covid-19 prevented our having the community Easter Egg Hunt. In spite of this, the Easter Bunny traveled through the neighborhoods in his Bunny Bus brightly decorated for the occasion. Children of all ages got to experience some of the joy of Easter this morning.

We were all able to watch from front porches, steps or windows as the Easter Bunny with his helper drove by in the decorated bunny truck. While his driver drove and beeped the horn, Mr. Bunny waved his greetings to everyone.

Special thanks to the Social Committee, Stefan Moll, Mr. Bunny and everyone else who helped to make this happen.

Pictures from Easter Sunday morning are posted here.

Easter Bunny Visits Governors Village Sunday Morning at 10

The Easter Bunny is making another visit to Governors Village! He will start in the Park this Sunday, Easter Morning at 10 am, and then go to the Townes, Lake, Forest, and Village, in that order. Keep watch and wave from your porch as he rides around waving hello! Please remain socially distant, stay on porches or sidewalks and prevent children from running after the truck for safety.

Thanks and Happy Easter!

Santa, house decorating contest, and more! Saturday, December 19th in Governors Village

Hello neighbors! It’s the most wonderful time of year :)

I asked the elf on the shelf to tell Jack Frost to send Rudolph to ask Santa if he could come to see the children of Governors Village and he said yes!

Since the sleigh will be getting a tune up for the holidays, our friends at the North Chatham Fire Department have offered to give him a lift.

If your household has believers and you will be in town on the morning of Saturday, December 19th, please send me an email directly at jenbucknell@gmail.com (do not “reply all” to the group), with the subject “Santa Clause is coming to town” with your address and which neighborhood you live in (please send by next Wednesday, December 9th). This will help me draw up a route and figure out a start time, etc.

For those on the nice list, there will be a holiday mailbox at both the Village playground and the Park playground you can drop your letters to Santa in, he will pick them up on that morning to take back to the North Pole!

Also, for all the Clark Griswolds in the neighborhood, we are having a home decorating contest this year on that same night! If you would like to enter, email me your address with the subject “GV Home Decorating Contest 2020” and get ready to showcase your holiday cheer. The Social Committee will select first, second, and third place winners out of all houses that enter, and winners will get a special gift. We are sure all the beautiful decorations will warm even the Grinch’s heart.

Looking forward to a safe, socially distant, and fun day with our fellow neighbors!

With cheer,

GV Social Committee
