Greenville Council of Garden Clubs
Calendar for 2020-2021

(Note: Dates are subject to change. Immediate Notification will be given.)
Board and Council Members are invited for brunch on the dates listed.

Weather Alert: 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 than other spots. Therefore, in cases of inclement weather, please call Kilgore-Lewis House (232-3020) or our GCGC President, Joan Wilson (363-1380) before risking dangerous driving conditions or a personal slip/fall to attend a meeting at the KL House.
