ABOUT THE LOST CREEK HOME AND GARDEN CLUB

What do you get when you mix yummy food with engaging conversation and remarkable women? Add interesting presentations on a variety of subjects and that equals The Lost Creek Home and Garden Club. First organized in 1977, Garden Club is an eclectic group of young and young-at-heart women, meeting monthly at a member's home.

This is not your average Garden Club. Although we are responsible for choosing the Yard of the Month and presenting the Holiday Lighting Awards, we also decorate the MUD Park during the holidays and keep a careful watch over the median and entrance flower beds. We accept 40 full-time members and 15 associate members. Our meetings are held on the second Tuesday from September through May. Field trips have included such interesting locations as the Wildseed Farms in Fredericksburg, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, the Governorís Mansion, and the Texas State Capitol. Each meeting opens with brunch and a program which has included a variety of topics. Guest Speakers have included West Bank's own best-selling author and mystery writer, Jeff Abbott, Flower Arranging by Central Market, The History of Chocolate by Viva Chocolato, John Dromgoole from the Natural Gardener, Holiday table decorations by Breed and Company, Mary Sanchez from Barton Springs Nursery, and our fabulous Christmas Party in December. We invite you to any one of our monthly gatherings, and would love to have you join us at the MUD Park, usually the Tuesday after Thanksgiving at 9:00am to help decorate for the Holidays.

To contact us, please call: President Connie Rorie at 512-328-1879 or First Vice President Marie Fuller at 512-328-3940. .
