The 8th Annual Firemen’s Pancake Breakfast and 5K Run/Walk fundraiser will be held on Saturday, May 11, 2013, opening day for the Governors Village pool. Sponsored by the Social Committee, this fun-filled morning includes a 5K Run/Walk through the neighborhoods, a pancake breakfast and a Kids Triathlon.

This social event has become a Governors Village tradition that brings neighbors together to benefit the Chatham County Fire Department. With the money raised last year the firemen were able to purchase an additional defibrillator and gas detector. Again this year firemen will be on site with fire trucks, a huge ladder and other equipment and will even serve breakfast!
