Members of Bluebonnet Study Club met Tuesday, June 17th as the regular club meeting. With reluctance and after many comments, members voted to cease as a civic organization in Mason.
The Mason Bluebonnet Study Club was formed in 1941 with ten charter members. We are a member of Alamo District of Texas Federation of Women’s Clubs (TFWC) which is a part of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, an international service organization headquartered in Washington, DC. During its history, the club has promoted conservation, education, health, international & public affairs, and Texas Heritage with many informational programs plus numerous field trips.
We have presented the Ruby Kettner scholarship yearly to a graduating Mason senior plus provided a scholarship to HOBY. HOBY (Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership) has inspired young people to make a difference and to become catalysts for positive change in their home, school, workplace, and community. Currently the signature project of TFWC is domestic violence. The members of Bluebonnet Study Club supported the Haven, a family shelter located in Brady serving Mason, McCullough, and Menard counties by providing cleaning supplies, health items, gift cards and moneys for several years. One of our club members now serves on the Board of Directors of the Haven.
After 73 years, we bid farewell to an organization that has served this community faithfully.
