In August the “Thomye Delle Celebrate Our Seniors” program will commemorate 20 years of service to the citizens of Brenham and Washington County. In recognition of this significant milestone, the program has already begun to honor and engage with senior citizens in area nursing homes. The first such activity involved senior citizens at Brenham Nursing & Rehabilitation Center on Wednesday, February 15, 2023.

In cooperation with the youth ministry at Mt. Rose Missionary Baptist Church of Brenham, the program reconstituted the “Hattie Lee Franklin-Maxie Bingo Challenge” by bringing it to the senior citizens. Founder Veronica Maxie says, "We are building a bridge between our seniors and youth by celebrating throughout the year and we are thankful to the youth from Mt. Rose for volunteering, and we welcome other youth and churches who want to help."

Similar bingo challenges will be held at High Hope Skilled Care Center in April and at Argent Court Assisted Living Center in June. Usually, the bingo challenge is held during the annual program in August.

These and other planned activities are in addition to an expanded program on Saturday, August 12, 2023 in which care packages will again be delivered to senior citizens in nursing homes and private residences. Program volunteers and sponsors will also be recognized on that day.

The “Thomye Delle Celebrate Our Seniors” program is only possible because of generous tax-deductible contributions from individuals, churches, companies, and organizations. Co-founder Tre Maxie says, "We are humbled by the incredible support from the community that has enabled us to celebrate our seniors for 20 years."

If you would like to support the program, please contact Veronica Maxie at (979) 830-5555, or by email at, or via mail at Thomye Delle Celebrate Our Seniors, 2628 Hwy 36S #244, Brenham Texas 77833.

Our Mission

The mission of the Brenham Community Festival's "Celebrate Our Seniors" program is to recognize, honor and celebrate the contributions that the citizens of Washington County have made to their communities.  Oftentimes, these individuals and the positive impact they have had on their communities go unrecognized.  To date, the program has acknowledged the positive contributions of over 75 individuals and couples.  And over 3,500 meals have been served to program participants.  In addition to the recognition and meal, live gospel music is presented, bingo is available, and door prizes (including cash) are awarded.

During the 2018 program, the name of the annual program was changed to The "Thomye Delle Celebrate Our Seniors” Day Program in honor of Ms. Thomye Delle Jameson-Ferguson-Burnett, one of the first persons to be honored by the program (2005).
