"Bringing Christmas to the 'Training School for Girls'"
In 1919, five years after the Harris County Training School for Girls opened in Bellaire, E. P. West and the Houston Rotary Club began an annual project to fund Christmas presents for the girls. Dinner and entertainment were presented to the Rotarians and their guests by the girls. The Rotarians supported the home well into the 1960s as it evolved from the Mary Burnett School into the Burnett-Bayland Home.
