The Gun Barrel City Rainbow Girls attended a Christmas Honor Tea at the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas. There was beautiful live Christmas music and delicious refreshments to be enjoyed while honoring the state officers and recognizing the top Poinsettia sellers. Selling the flowers is an annual project for the Dallas Area Rainbow Girls. The Poinsettias decorate the Scottish Rite Hospital for the holidays, and proceeds from the sales are donated to the hospital. The Rainbow Girls also decorated one of the hospital’s many Christmas trees with tiny books and owls, which are the Grand Worthy Advisor’s emblems this year.
