2014-2015 Republic of Texas Museum Art Contest

The Republic of Texas Museum reception for the 2015 Art Contest Awards was a great success. Marvin Morgan, a Texas Army re-enactor gave the opening salute and presented the program entitled “Muskets of Yesteryear.” Museum committee member Lois Lacy accompanied a group sing-a-long with her guitar. Maryann Pringle (in costume) presented a historical book talk as Harriet Potter and entitled “The Bravest Woman in the Republic of Texas.” Republic of Texas Museum Art Contest winners’ certificates and awards were then presented by Harriet Potter (Maryann Pringle).  Refreshments were then enjoyed by all!
