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.
