The officers and chairmen of the Clara Driscoll Chapter of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas were treated to a luncheon on Aug. 1 hosted by their new president, Theresa Baucum.

The event was held in the Baucum guest home near Robstown. Sandra Mikulencak, retiring president, also attended.

The group meets monthly, except in the summer, and at Driscoll Children's Hospital.

The luncheon table was decorated with red, white and blue appointments reflective of the colors of the Texas flag, which was also displayed.

The purpose of the meeting was to discuss plans for the new season, beginning in September. It was also a chance for the new officers and chairmen to learn the duties of their offices and discuss any questions they might want answered.

The Daughters are women who had ancestors living and serving Texas during the days it was a Republic. On February 19, 1846, the Republic of Texas flag was lowered and in its place was raised the flag of theUnited States. That day, Texas became a state in the Union of the United States of America.
