   Shenandoah City Councilman, Wes Stephens, presented Pat Spackey, Vice Regent of the the Heritage Trails Chapter of The Daughters of the of the Armerican Revolution with an ORIGINAL copy of the The State of Texas House of Representatives Resolution No. 1123 during a recent DAR meeting held at the Shenandoah, Texas City Hall facilities.  With the help of Representative, Bob Eissler, Stephens secured the original document from Austin and announced to those in attendance at the meeting that the Shenandoah Convention and Visitors Bureau and the City of Shenandoah felt that this document would be deeply appreciated by a descendant of Dr. Charles B. Stewart - who designed the Texas Flag!

   "I am truly overwhelmed and thank the City of Shenandoah from the very bottom of my heart!," said Spackey.  "Our family is so proud to be descendants of Dr. Charles B. Stewart and because resolution #1123 officially commemorates Montgomery County as the "Birthplace of the Texas Flag," it is so special to our family.  To have an "original "copy in my family is absolutely incredible!"

   Because of her heritage, membership in history and patriotic organizations in the area have been a special blessing to the Spackey family.  In addition to serving as Vice Regent of the Heritge Trails Chapter of The Daughters of the American Revolution, Pat is President of the the Judge Nathaniel Hart Davis Chapter of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas; and serves as an officer of the Montgomery County Genealogical and Historical Soceity and the newly organized Texas Heritage Society.  She is a "Friend " of the Charles B. Stewart Library, the Montgomery Historical Society, The Lake Conroe Rotary Club's Memory Park, the Heritage Musuem of Montgomery County and the Nart Hart Davis Museum in Montgomery.
