Members of the Bosque River Chapter of The Children of the Republic of Texas recently gathered for a picture in front of the Alamo in San Antonio as a grand kick off to the 2021-22 year.

In addition, a second meeting was held at Barnard's Mill in Glen Rose to tour the mill and view the One Man Two Worlds exhibit about Quanah Parker. They also enjoyed the presentation by Liz McDonald, dressed in a buckskin dress, told Indian folktales and recounted the life of Cynthia Ann Parker.
