2013 PRESIDENTíS CHAPTER REPORT

 

Sterling C. Robertson Chapter, The Daughters of the Republic of Texas

District V, Waco, Texas

 

 

The chapter currently meets monthly, October through May.  Most active members and officers live in McLennan, Bosque, Coryell, and Limestone counties; but other members live across Texas and the United States.  Local SRT members attend our meetings. Guests are welcome.

 

The chapter observed each Texas Honor Day.  Honor Day information, along with meeting announcements, was sent to newspapers to be published throughout the area. Chapter programs added to our knowledge of Texas history.

 

The chapter Bylaws were updated and approved to coincide with new DRT Bylaws.

 

The chapter had 100% participation in the President Generalís Fund, donated $500.00 to the DRT Library inventory fund, and sent donations to Headquarters in memory of deceased members.

 

History of Sterling C. Robertson, DRTís fourth oldest chapter, has been submitted for The Daughters.

 

A chapter paver was purchased for the Republic Village Trail of Ancestors; pavers purchased by members will be placed next to it.  A copy of The Daughters will be donated to the Waco Genealogy Center, where DRT was featured in a display case.

 

Texas Independence was celebrated at the Texas Ranger Museum complex, recognizing students who entered Baylorís Heart of Texas Regional History Fair addressing Texas history topics.  Parents and teachers were also recognized.  Students were given Six Flags Over Texas sets.

 

Two Historical Markers from the Texas Historical Commission were approved and a Cemetery Preservation Workshop was held in Coryell County as the result of the work of one of our members.  Another member obtained a Historical Marker for a cemetery in McLennan County. Members attended Workshop and Convention.
