Corsicana — Dawson Garden Club

Dawson Garden Club selected the First Bank and Trust of Dawson as the Yard of the Month for November. Bright yellow blooms in a decorative planter out front catch the eye of the passersby who are doing business on the Main Street in Dawson. Orange and yellow decorations on the porch are very inviting also. A green well-kept lawn completes the picture. Dawson Garden Club greatly appreciates the care taken by the C.M. Newton Jr. Family to brighten our downtown area.
