BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) - A local women's organization is celebrating a huge anniversary, and at Tuesday's Bryan city council meeting, they were honored by the city.

They were given the proclamation and a huge round of applause for everything they've done for the community including their efforts to beautify and improve the Twin Cities.
"I think the main hopes and goals would be that we would continue to reach out to the community. We give scholarships to the high schools, all the public schools in Bryan and College Station, and just serve in as many ways as possible. That's the whole basis of our community, to better our community," said Sallye Henderson, the president of the club.
