President Pauline Hendryx opened the meeting of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas on Oct. 9. After Ann Heinrich gave the invocation, Rhonda Hahn and Ann Mozisek led the pledges to the flags.

Hendryx introduced guest speakers Margie Kacir and Emory Powitzky members of the DeWitt County Historical Commission. Kacir took on the role of the wife of George Washington Davis, an ancestor of hers who played an important role in the independence and settlement of early Texas. Powitzky took members back in time on the real life of a cattle driver on the Chisholm Trail. He also focused on Margaret Bouland, the only woman trail boss to have owned and driven her cattle to market on the Chisholm Trail.

The group paused for a refreshment break with a Halloween season theme provided by hostesses Jan Chilcoat, Joan Mathieu and Delores Tyng.

Marilyn Stewart and Raenice Kucera were installed as new members by Hendryx with the assistance of the chapter officers.

Members were encouraged to attend the Power Home Silver Tea on Dec. 14.
