The Daughters of the Republic of Texas met Saturday for their first official meeting after the summer.
Plans were discussed for the upcoming year among which include attending "The Spirit of South Texas - Old Bay View Cemetery Comes Alive" which will be held next month on Nov. 9, 2013. Some of the Daughters will participate in this event at Old Bay View Cemetery by reenacting the lives of various individuals who were buried there. The women will explain each deceased person's life stories and involvement in Corpus Christi and Texas history. The Merriman Historical Monument will also be dedicated at this event at 11:00 a.m. Various bands will participate in the event as well. The event is sponsored by the Nueces County Historical Commission in conjunction with Veteran's Day. The public is invited to attend.
The high point of the Meeting took place when Patricia Loomis was welcomed as a member.
Anita Eisenhauer, District 7 Representative, spoke to the group about "The Vision", the new Republic of Texas Museum and Headquarters planned to become the new official State Headquarters to be constructed in Austin, Texas, which is now in its planning stages. Anita told the group that every Daughter should support "The Vision" since it will be a living tribute for all our Republic of Texas ancestors.
Joyce Berkebile, a DRT member and former President of this Chapter, spoke about The History of the DRT Pins and "How to wear the Pins."
After many other plans were discussed, the 2013-2015 Clara Driscoll current Chapter President Theresa Baucum declared the meeting adjourned.
