As most of you know, DRT now owns the property next to the French Legation Museum, as of May this year. Much work has been done with the architects, builders, and the City of Austin dealing with permitting to get to the start of construction. Your DRT Museum Committee and Headquarters Committee are diligently working to give the architects and builders needed feedback for space requirements in the new facility. Republic Village will house our Republic of Texas Museum, our Headquarters, an interactive Children’s Museum, and our research center. We hope to begin construction in the coming months.
2013 Fall Paver Campaign
To make Republic Village a reality, we want to let all Daughters know that there is still the opportunity to be a part of DRT’s future! Last fall, the Vision Team launched the “Trail of Ancestors” paver project. It was a huge success with many Daughters participating. We are starting our newest paver campaign with some new incentives and rewards! We want to let everyone know that the paver campaign is still alive and growing!
There are opportunities to earn free pavers!
- Contributors making a donation of $25,000 to $500,000, have “Naming Rights” to buildings and other features in Republic Village!
- Chapters or individuals getting a $5,000 Business Donor, receive a FREE 8″ X 12″ paver!
- $5,000 Business donors will have a 8″ X 16″ paver placed in a prominent location in the Republic Village Courtyard!
- If 20% of a chapter’s membership purchases a paver, the chapter gets an 8″ X 8″ paver for FREE!
PLEASE NOTE: This percent would not be a cumulative percent with the last paver campaign. This offer is retroactive to the end of the last paver campaign on March 15, 2013. Campaign ends May 31, 2014.
The “Trail of Ancestors” will wind its way through the Republic Village around water features, flagpoles, porches, and buildings. These walkways will be a lasting tribute to people in our past and present.
We want to thank you in advance for being a part of the “PAVING THE WAY” to the future home of The Daughters of the Republic of Texas. Republic Village paver forms are available at the link below and on our new web site: www.republicvillage.org or you can call DRT Headquarters at 512) 339-1997, for questions or referral to a Vision Team member. Remember, pavers make great gifts for birthdays and the upcoming holiday season!
