April 11-13– Our State Convention will be held in historic Beaufort, SC. this Spring. Along with the Convention, we will be having a State 12” Miniature Design Flower Show. I know this will be a sight to see. I can’t wait to see all of the creative miniature designs.
April 18– We will again have our Arbor Day Program and Urban Forestry contest. I hope everyone will attend and support the students who have participated. This educational event is important to our mission and to the City of Greenville as a member of Tree City, USA for the last 39 years.
Generally the Kilgore-Lewis House will close when weather closes the public schools in Greenville. However, there are times when icing on our property exceeds other areas in the city and other days when we “clear up” more quickly. In cases of inclement weather, please call Kilgore-Lewis House (864.232.3020) before risking dangerous driving conditions or a personal slip and fall to attend a meeting or event at the Kilgore-Lewis House.
