These club members did a wonderful job of creating centerpieces for the Washington County Chamber of Commerce Industrial Foundation Banquet in January, 2017.  We had a few members who were not able to make it that day, but those who did had a great time of fellowship and a couple hours to let their creative juices flow!

 It's so satisfying to be able to use what is in our gardens to create something this beautiful! Great job!

Another successful morning decorating for the Washington County Chamber of Commerce Industrial Foundation Banquet held on Tuesday, February 2, 2016. This is a yearly project that has been supported by Bluebonnet Garden Club for the past 43 years!  Now, that's dedication! To top off the evening, our very own garden club member extraordinaire, Twila Tate, was named Woman of the Year by the chamber.  This is a much deserved award as Twila not only is a dedicated and hardworking garden club member but supports many other organizations in the community.  We are so proud and thankful to have Twila in our club!  She was instrumental in the start of the Butterfly Garden at Brenham Elementary and her dedication has continued to this day.  Thank you, Twila, for all you do!
