Cupcakes for a cure

Alena Jade (AJ) Villalpando seems like a normal, shy 5-year-old. She whispers to me, like a secret, “Do you want to see my room?” She runs in her room and jumps on her bed, covering herself in blankets. She loves dogs and has pictures of puppies on her walls, and a round dog bed at the foot of her own, for her dog, Lia. And on her wall is a colored picture of the words “AJ Strong.”

DRT kicks off another year

Twenty-three members of the Moon-McGehee Chapter, Daughters of The Republic of Texas, and nine guests kicked off the beginning of their new year with a Meet-and-Greet meeting at the San Marcos Saltgrass Restaurant.
The purpose of the meeting was for members, guests and prospective members to learn more about DRT, for guests to have an opportunity to visit with and ask questions of local chapter members and officers and to buy Texas sales items sold by the chapter to support the chapter’s local projects.
