    I totally agree but I do object to referring this to the the same Annual Meeting event and date. I was there, Jim was elsewhere do it had to be staged later on.

    SJD President Maurice Stokes arranged for the presentation to be at the May 3rd SRT San Jacinto Chapter Monthly meeting due to a conflict that arose with April 14th Annual Luncheon.

    2018 Battle of Flowers - 127th Anniversary - The San Jacinto Descendants organization maintained a presence at the parade this year. The wreath was presented to stand in front of the Alamo. Hopefully our organization can increase the presence in future years with increased participants and an improved carriage design to eventually win First Place in the carriage category. The first Battle of Flowers in 1891 was the origins of what's now called Fiesta and was started to celebrate San Jacinto Day where in that first year only friends, neighbors, and descendants of the Texas veterans participated. It's amazing what Fiesta has grown into over 127 years.

    That looks different from last year, did they get a new carriage this time?
    77 weeks ago The San Jacinto Descendants
    It's the same carriage, but we forgot the San Jacinto Liberty Flags that we put on the carriage last year.
