Program for Sep 13, 2016. Our program for will be "Backyard Birds for Gardeners". This will discuss ways to help birds in our area including our backyard and gardens. This program will also provide useful information on birds. This program will be by Mike Goebel associated with the National Audubon Society.
2016 Plant and Book Sale and silent auction on April 1-2 2016 We had this sale event on Friday April 1 and Saturday April 2. This Plant Sale, Silent Auction, and Quilt Raffle will support the Bastrop Library summer children's activity and reading program. This was held in conjunction with the "Friends of the Library" annual book sale. We offered hard-to-find, Bastrop hardy perennials, shrubs, and succulents, along with vegetable starts. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Library’s summer reading program for kids. We raised $6,661 for the Library (even better than last year where we raised $5,300) at the event. Click here for more information. This is much appreciated by the Bastrop Library and the Friends of the Library to help support their programs.

Lawn tractor donation to the Bastrop Family Crisis Center
Our club (with the support of Lowes) donated a lawn tractor to the Bastrop Family Crisis Center. This enables the Center to use in house resources to save on landscaping costs freeing up scarce funds to support their core mission of helping people in Bastrop County.
