Lockerly Newsletter October 2017
From the Director

Happy Fall, Y'all!!!   
At Lockerly, we are loving the break from the heat that came just in time for Family Fun Day.  Thank you to everyone who came out, participated or volunteered for the event.  It was a tremendous success, with over 200 happy participants!!

Next up for Lockerly is the holiday season.  As the "new kid on the block" I can't wait to watch the garden clubs work their magic and decorate Rose Hill with fresh greenery from the grounds.   Our 4 Milledgeville garden clubs are the definition of southern grace and charm.   We are so blessed that they so generously lend those attributes to Lockerly during the holidays.  Thank you!!
Information about tickets for our holiday reception are below.  Please put it on your calendar and we look forward to seeing you soon! 
Warm regards,
Jennifer Pollard
Executive Director
