NEW LEADER FOR ASHANTILLY'S ANNUAL SCOTCH WHISKY TASTING!

Ashantilly Center celebrates Scottish Heritage Month (March) with an annual Scotch Whisky Tasting. Tim Rutherford, our friend and supporter for many years, moved to Asheville NC and was not availble to lead this tasting. Vince Becker, of Habersham's Liquors in Savannah, came to the rescue! Vince did a great job of teaching participants about the finer qualities of this rich Scottish tradition. And give a shoutout to Habersham's for their generous discounts that helped make this fund-raiser successful!

THE ELVES HAVE BEEN BUSY!

Ashantilly is beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Noel Gieleghem, Brandon Tyson, and Bill Bolin worked tirelessly decorating the house, inside and out, with natural materials from our coastal region. Boondoggles and grape vine wreaths were decked out with shells, pecans, citrus, and greenery. Carol Gaither, Gigi Stratton and Donna Bassett did their annual decorating of the tree, beautiful!

Oh, what fun in the Print Shop! Students printed their own cards that had been set by their instructor, Nicholas Silberg. After learning the basics about setting type, they composed their lines for the inside of their cards. Ashantilly Press's wide collection of typefaces offered many choices. The cards look great!
