Members of the Bosque River Chapter of The Daughters of the Republic of Texas joined almost 400 others attending the 126th annual convention of DRT in Dallas May 25-27.
The highlight was receiving the Six Star Chapter Award which recognized the work of the chapter in such areas as sponsoring essay contests about Texas history, donating books on Texas history to local libraries, marking graves of citizens and veterans of the Republic of Texas, encouraging people to know the pledge to the flag of Texas, and sponsoring a chapter of Children of the Republic of Texas.
Only 29 chapters state wide achieved this level.
Bosque River Chapter will host the District II workshop in Stephenville on Aug. 5 and plans are already underway. Approximately 70 members are expected to attend.
