At 96 years old, Thelma Jensen has been in CBGC longer than any other member. 
                         She joined the club 40 
                         years ago, in 1977. Although 
                        Thelma’s health does not allow 
                         her to attend the monthly 
                         meetings, she remains a 
                         member and still has friends 
                         from the club. And she has many fond memories of the days when she was more actively involved. [Read more about Thelma Jensen]

                has been an active CBGC 
                member since 1996. She co-chaired the Horticulture Committee for 4 years; she loved horticulture and everything about it. She says the best thing about being a club member has been the friendships she’s made over the years. [Read more]
