First Annual Dog Swim

The first Annual Dog Swim in Governors Village was held Sunday, September 25, 2016.  Recreation Committee Chair Trent Leonard reported on the event today and sent along some photos.

Thanks to all those who came out with their dogs for the 1st annual Governors Village Dog Swim! We raised $74 for CARE (Chatham Animal Rescue and Education) in Pittsboro, and we had approximately 15 dogs come through the gate. Fourteen of them were reluctant swimmers, but one Hungarian Vizsla (named Teddy I think) was the eager swimmer of the day running and jumping into the pool multiple times.

Until next year, have a good autumn!

The regular 2016 pool season ended Sunday, September 18. Deep thanks to Trent and the rest of the Recreation Committee for a successful swim year from the Governors Village community.

Dog Swim Scheduled This Sunday, September 25, 2016

A dog swim in Governors Village has been suggested for a few years. Today Recreation Committee Chair Trent Leonard confirmed this year it will happen.

The event takes place Sunday, September 25, 2016, 3:00 – 4:00 pm.

Bring your dog to enjoy a swim this Sunday afternoon at the pool at 3:00 p.m. Bring a ball to throw or whatever toy they want to chase into the water. Feel free to swim with your pooch, should you like to do so. The event will run until 4:00 p.m. or so.

I will be accepting donations to CARE (Chatham Animal Rescue and Education) in Pittsboro at the door.

In response  to a resident’s inquiry about whether this activity will require the pool to be drained and cleaned, Trent replied no additional maintenance will be incurred.

No need to drain the pool. The reason we do this after the season is over is because of the mess. However, no pack of dogs is as messy as winter, so no special cleanup is necessary.

This is the last swimming opportunity until spring. The regular 2016 pool season ended Sunday, September 18.

Pool Closed Due To Storm And Other Pool Notes

With the impending storm Hermine, the pool is closed today and will reopen Saturday. Trent Leonard, Recreation Committee Chair made the announcement around 12:30 pm Friday.

Here are a few more items of interest regarding the pool.

  1. When the pool does reopen residents are asked to remember that the pool closes daily at sunset, which will occur sooner and sooner each day until closing day on September 18, 2016. To that end, the gate will no longer allow entry after 7:45 pm.
  2. Trent inquired how would this community feel about a polar bear plunge into the pool in January or February to raise money for a local charity? The water is typically in the upper 30s or lower 40s.
  3. Dog swim proposed after the pool closes Sept 18.
    The POA Board approved a dog swim at the pool after the season ended last year, but the weather turned cold and rainy quickly in October, so we never got a chance. Trent plans to give it a second shot this year if the weather cooperates, so look out for more information closer to pool closing.
  4. Other members of the 2016 Recreation committee are Garrett Blake, John Cangelosi, Bob Wynne, Chris Gamber Karen Korach, Tim Mounce, Barry Bassett. John Eberhard is the POA Board liaison.

2016 Governors Village Annual Pool Party

pool party registerGovernors Village Annual Pool Party
August 27, 2016, 4-­8 pm
Community Pool in Governors Park
RSVP by August 20, 2016

On August 27, 2016 the Social Committee will host our Annual Pool Party for all residents of Governors Village. Our menu for this year’s party will again be catered by NanaTaco. The Social Committee will provide lemonade, ice tea and water and we ask that families bring a dessert to share and any other beverage they would like.

As in past years, this event is tied to our community’s generous support of the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC . We ask that families donate non­perishable food items (no glass), and we also will have a table to collect donations to help feed needy families in our community. Boxes will be posted at the entrance gates at the pool for donations.

We also would like to provide an opportunity for the crafters, woodworkers, sewers, artists, bakers and jewelry makers etc. within Governors Village to expose their talents by donating a piece of their work to be raffled off at the pool party to benefit the Food Bank. Most of us would love to win something that was made by one of our neighbors. Also we’d hope by this exposure you could generate new customers if your work is business based. If you’d like to donate a piece of your talent, please contact Adam or Shannon Novak by email at anovak91@gmail.com

The pool party is free to residents of the Governors Village community (Lake, Forest, Townes, Park, Village). If you’d like to bring guests over 3 years old there will be a $10 charge per person. Please register by August 20, 2016.

Cracked Filter Causes Governors Village Pool Closing

Scene from 2015 Kid's Triathlon

The Governors Village pool is currently closed due to a cracked filter in the pump room. When our pool attendant arrived this morning, Friday, July 24, 2015, he found that the water in the pool had dropped about 4 inches.

Pool Professionals is onsite and their team is working to fix the problem as quickly as possible. Talis Management Group will send out a notice when the pool is reopened.
