Blanche Hobbs: An honor presented to a member for her outstanding service to the club
Blanche Hobbs moved to Howey from her native Columbus, Georgia, and was extremely active in civic and community causes, especially education. She soon joined the Howey Garden Club, as it was known then, and became enthusiastically involved. In the early 1980’s, she originated the “Sweet Pea” award to be given to members who had gone out of their way to serve the organization. The award evolved to become “The Blanche Hobbs” award, in recognition of Blanche’s own southern hospitality and dedication to our club. A deserving member is honored each Spring.
