The Board of Directors has appointed Keets F. Taylor, as Interim Executive Director of the Catawba Valley Scottish Society, Inc. (CVSS) and Historic Rural Hill Farm.

Keets and her husband, Dick Taylor, came back to North Mecklenburg in 1992 as volunteers to help organize the Loch Norman Highland Games. As the success of the event has grown so has opportunity. In 1995 the CVSS accepted stewardship of Rural Hill, the Homestead of John and Violet Wilson Davidson, as a Partner in Parks with Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation. Keets and Dick worked on the committee to develop the Master Plan for preservation of this important historic site and Keets has worked as the Administrative Assistant to the Executive Committee since 1997.

She was born in Alaska, spent her formative years in Flat Rock, North Carolina, and lived many years in Minnesota, California, Arizona and Florida. Her mother, Leona, a self described health food nut, owned and operated the Merry Miller Health Food Store in Hendersonville. Her father, Robroy Farquhar founded the Flat Rock Playhouse, the State Theater of North Carolina where her brother Robin is still Managing Director.

Growing up behind the scenes in summer stock theater has been good training for facilitating management of the events at Rural Hill. The society presents the Rural Hill Sheep Dog Trials, the Amazing Maize Maze and the Loch Norman Highland Games and has plans to open Historic Rural Hill farm year round. The eleventh Loch Norman Highland Games will be held on April 17 and 18. Call 704-875-3113 or for more information.
