The Bosque River Chapter of Daughters of the Republic of Texas met Oct. 9 and the program was “Who Was the Yellow Rose?” presented by Robin Richey. Before the meeting several members of the chapter presented the book, “Music of the Republic” by W.R. Chermerka and A.J. Wiener to the 3rd and 4th grade English and social studies classes of Three Way School. Teacher Amanda Vann accepted the gift. Small cards with the Pledge to the flag of Texas were also given.
One of the goals of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas is to encourage the teaching of the history of Texas and one way this is accomplished is by donating materials to local schools.
