The Bosque River Chapter of Daughters of the Republic of Texas will open 2019 with a program by newly-elected Erath County Judge Alfonso Campos.

Judge Campos will talk about his family’s move from Mexico when he was a young child and the challenges he faced as he grew up in the Huckaby community, eventually being elected county judge.  The meeting will be held Tuesday, Jan. 8, at 2 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church of Stephenville.  Visitors are invited to attend.

Members will also be consolidating plans to become a Six Star chapter, the highest DRT award.  To fulfill the requirements the chapter will be encouraging students to enter an essay contest, donating books to local libraries, researching more ancestors who lived in Texas during the period of the Republic, and recognizing the Texas Honor Days. 

For information on becoming a member go to or call chapter registrar Toni Morgan 254-396-1162.
