A Festive Season: Join Us For The Holidays

Like many of you, we look forward to the Holidays each year in the Carolinas. Rich and I chose Greenville, SC and the Upstate region as our headquarters for many reasons: the beautiful setting, miles of scenic mountain roads, the vibrant lifestyle, a friendly community, and the year-round mild climate. This is our home. Each holiday season I’m reminded of how much this place means to me, and how welcoming everyone has made us feel. We are truly fortunate to be able to raise our children here, in this wonderful corner of the world. And we want you to share the joys of this season with us. We have a full December Calendar of fun events and dinners for you and your loved ones to celebrate as well.

The holidays come just once a year and that’s what makes them so special. Rich and I look forward to seeing you and sharing in the celebration.

Happy Holidays,

George
