Invitation for Dogwood Duchesses

The Tyler County Dogwood Festival has invited surrounding cities to send a senior girl to represent them as a duchess in the royal court to her highness the 2015 Dogwood Queen.

The festival would also like to extend the invitation to those of you from Tyler County who may have an interested granddaughter, niece, cousin or friend from another city that might like to participate in this year's festival as a visiting duchess.

If you know someone who might be interested, please contact Carrie Standley at (409) 429-6300 or Candace Spivey at (409) 547-3109 as soon as possible as the festival can only accommodate 24 duchesses.

The deadline for registration is March 2, 2015 and the girl's name and address will be needed in order to register.

The 72nd annual Tyler County Dogwood Festival will be a wonderful experience for a senior girl, as she will have the opportunity to make new friends and share in a fun-filled weekend as we celebrate the beauty of springtime in Tyler County.
