I hope all will participate in the Fun and Fundraising events. for a successful and exciting year. Thanks to all the Presidents for the beautiful yearbooks. I am thoroughly enjoying reading them. We have some very talented ladies in our Council and as I read, I can tell that all of us are going to have an exciting year with very interesting programs and field trips.
Holidays are right around the corner!!! I hope everyone is looking forward to decorating our historical Kilgore-Lewis House which will be open to the clubs, council and our community on Sunday, December 2nd from 2 – 4 p.m.

Spotlight on.…Roberta Casaceli, Headquarters Chairman
In 2006 my husband and I decided it was time to retire from the business we had built in Florida. After twenty years we also decided retirement would not be in Florida. Not wanting to return to a cold climate we searched the South and discovered Greenville. It was the perfect choice for us, temperate but not as cold as the North. We are both life-long gardeners, and I joined a garden club right away to meet people of like minds 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 the 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.
