A message from your Council President….Joan Wilson

Happy New Year to all of our Council members.  The busy, festive holidays are behind us and now we can start focusing on 2018.  I am so looking forward to Spring time and watching our beautiful gardens come to life again.

With warmer weather, we can also start work on a few much needed projects.  As soon as weather permits, our circle drive and parking lot will be repaired and paved.  On the second floor, the damage done by our sweet little friendly squirrels will be repaired and our handicap walk way flooring will be replaced.

We will have a lot going on with our house and grounds this Spring.  We must also keep in mind our Garden Tour which is our biggest annual fund raiser.  It takes all of us to make the tour a success. Please keep May 11th and 12th free on your calendars; so, you can participate in the tour as docents or in any way you are needed.

I would like to “Thank” each and everyone of you for your time, monetary donations and dedication in helping to keep our beautiful Kilgore-Lewis House and Gardens a place that we can share and be very proud to be a part of.   May God bless each and everyone of you in 2018.

Share a Smile today,  Joan Wilson

Spotlight on.……Roberta Casaceli,  Council Headquarters Chairman 

In 2006 my husband and I decided it was time to retire from the business we had built in Florida.  Not wanting to return to a cold climate we searched the South and discovered Greenville; it was the perfect choice for us! We are both life-long gardeners, and I joined a garden club right away to meet like minded people and become a part of my new community.

When I saw Kilgore-Lewis House I fell in love with it. I got involved first as a docent for many years, later a hostess for rental events, and am presently the Second Vice-President of the Council. This position serves as Headquarters Chairman securing all service contracts necessary to the operation and maintenance of the house. It also means serving as the go-between with personnel and Board of Directors. All of the wonderful members are a great help with this often weighty position. Along the way I became a Master Gardener which affords me a better understanding of the plants in this beautiful part of the world.      Roberta Casaceli

Elegance and spaciousness make the Kilgore-Lewis property a favorite spot for weddings and other events. This lovely house and the spring in its gardens are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Kilgore-Lewis House serves as the headquarters of the Greenville Council of Garden Clubs.

Expecting THE ring soon? Kilgore-Lewis, a truly historic house with 3.5 acres of gardens on a small lake, is the ideal place for a wedding day that will be more beautiful than you can dream in a location that is close to downtown but feels like a secret romantic hideaway! Come see for yourself!
