Tammy Ruether’s fourth grade class at Columbus Elementary was introduced to the Texas Pioneer Life Trunk Show on Feb. 8. Dressed in pioneer garb, Donna Pustejovsky and Debra Kollman of the Dilue Rose Harris Chapter of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas (DRT) presented the artifacts to students.

The students were able to touch, feel, explore, and discuss the pieces exhibited. Texas Republic replica currency, maps, balls of cotton and hand cards, and pioneer toys were of particular interest.

The DRT is the oldest women’s patriotic organization in Texas and is dedicated to the preservation and education of Texas history.

For more information on the DRT, please visit the website at or the Dilue Rose Harris Chapter Facebook page.
