2017 Governors Village Egg Hunt

The annual Governors Village Easter Egg Hunt was held Saturday, April 15, 2017. The day was comfortably warm and sunny.

Events started with story time. Melissa Barry took the children through several picture books that kept her audience involved throughout.

Next Marney Whitney led a children’s yoga session. The children participated in some yoga moves that were fun to do. Some of the poses were suggested by insect or animal motions including butterfly and down dog.

Following yoga, as if by magic the Easter Bunny appeared hopping out of the woods. He was immediately surrounded by the children who thoroughly enjoy his annual appearance. After he was greeted, the Egg Hunt began.

The younger children searched for eggs in the fenced in area and the older children hunted in a grassy area.

After the eggs were all collected they were exchanged for a cupcake and a bag of candy treats. The cupcakes were decorated with marshmallow chicks, marshmallow bunnies and other decorations. Difficult choices were made.

Afterwards, some of the children spent time with the Easter Bunny and a couple of dads were enlisted to propel their children on the swings.

Governors Village Easter Egg Hunt – 2015

The annual Governors Village Easter Egg Hunt was held on March 28, 2015. The day while chilly, was nice with lots of sun. There were games with the Easter Bunny who Bunny Hopped all over. We are extremely fortunate to have a homeowner who is a professional librarian, Mary Shaver. She delighted both children and adults with her story telling. Some of the children participated in the telling of one of the tales. Deputies from the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office held a Bicycle Rodeo demonstrating proper equipment and road safety rules. Children were given helmets and shown how to correctly wear them to provide the most protection.

The Easter Egg hunt came next with eggs scattered throughout the meadow park. The children collected as many as they could and turned them in for candy and cupcakes. The selection of cupcakes was very enticing making it difficult to choose. After all had their fill, they returned home with happy memories.

Our thanks to the members of the Social Committee for the time and energy they put into this successful event. We also must thank the Easter Bunny for his (or her?) taking part in this occasion. We thank the Deputies from The Sheriff’s Office too.

Beautiful weather and excited children marked the annual Governors Village Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 30, 2013. The Easter Bunny’s guest appearance was a highlight of the event  as he hopped from here to there, encouraging the kids (and some adults) to join him.

Other features of the afternoon fun were story time, games and the egg hunt, followed by cupcakes provided by the Social Committee. The Social Committee deserves much applause and thanks for putting together this special activity for the community.
