The Patrick Henry and William Hightower chapter Color Guards have made the news! I’m sure this won’t be the last time with all of the activities we have currently planned. If you’re interested in joining the Guard send me a note. It’s a very rewarding experience.

The greatest blessings that we have had this year are the privilege to sponsor several Veteran families for their Christmas Dinner and celebrations. This past weekend, Patrick Henry Chapter of the Texas Society of the Sons of the American Revolution joined with the Andrew Carruthers Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and Central Texas Returning Hero’s delivered Christmas Dinners to several Veteran Families in Travis and Hays County. The Christmas Dinners have been generously donated by Chris Walsh General Manager at our Wimberley HEB Store.

One such family is the Holden family of Wimberly. Stefani is an Air Force veteran who is taking care of her three grandchildren. Saturday, we were very honored to gift Stefani and her family wrapped presents for their tree, gift cards to movies and Toys –R- Us, and a wonderfull Christmas meal provided by Chris Walsh at HEB.
Patrick Henry Chapter in partnership with the DAR and the CTRH have donated Christmas toys for the children and ATM gift cards for a dozen veteran families in Hays and Travis Counties. To learn more how you can help these families please let us know. We are hoping to expand this program so that we may help more families in the coming year!
Color Guard members James Clements and Robert Hites of the Patrick Henry Chapter for along with Jerry Bullock, Mike Pryor, John Booth and Don Chandler of the William Hightower Chapter join the San Marcos Civil Air Patrol Squadron in their Flag Raising Ceremony on the evening of the 15th of Nov 2016.
