Next Monday, October 14, the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, Heart of Texas Chapter, will meet — with Gregory Hector as special guest speaker. The program will begin at 4:00 p.m. followed by refreshments and a business meeting. All DRT meetings are open to the public.
Hector, who is the President of the McCulloch County Historical Commission, will speak about well-known Texans who served as Confederate Commanders and Soldiers. McCulloch County is named for Gen. Ben McCulloch, who fought for the Confederacy. Many counties in Texas are named for historical figures from the days of the Civil War and also the Republic of Texas.
During September, several members of the Chapter attended their District VIII meeting which was held at The Hills Country Club, Texas. District meetings provide information between local Chapters and the DRT Board of Management. It also provides an opportunity to learn of events available at other Chapters. Attending recently were (from left to right) Parliamentarian Shelly Perkins, By-Laws Chairman Judy Hanks, President Karen Bishop, and Second Vice-President Cynthia Quinn.
This will be the last meeting for the Heart of Texas Chapter in their Business Office and Meeting Room located at 106 North College Street. At the end of October, they will be moving to a new location. Look for us soon on the Brady Square! Inquiries about programs, meetings and association may be directed to President Karen Bishop at 325-243-5261 or Registrar Sheila Van Zant at 325-344-5423. Information is also available at the official DRT website, www.drtinfo.org and at the local Chapter email address, firstname.lastname@example.org.
