These “Friend”ly ladies, members of the Friends of the Bridge City Public Library, donated hours of their time to paint the new addition to the library. Pictured from left to right are Heidi Welch, Marian Small, Charlotte Chiasson, Annette Fontenot, and Bertie Herman. Painters not shown are Pat Small and Linda Dubose.

The paint was provided through a generous grant from the Foundation for Southeast Texas. The Foundation’s mission is to make a positive difference in the quality of life in the area by encouraging philanthropic gifts and by assisting donors in achieving their charitable goals through the professional management and considered and caring distribution of such gifts.
