Drawing for the Dickert Rifle Replica Held and Winner Announced
As part of this morning’s meeting of the DRT Library Committee, the drawing for a replica of the Jacob Dickert rifle used by an Alamo defender during the 1836 battle was held. Alamo shrine hostess and former DRT Library Committee Chairman Pam Bickerton pulled the winning ticket as committee members, DRT Library staff, and some Alamo colleagues looked on.
Congratulations to Jackie Henry of Big Spring, Texas!
Through ticket sales and donations, the library was able to meet its goal of funding a space utilization study of current library facilities. We look forward to moving ahead with this project during the coming months and will post updates here at “Inside the Gates.”
Special thanks to Larry Hollingsworth, who generously donated his time and expertise to the DRT Library. His beautifully and accurately constructed replica of the Dickert rifle made the drawing possible. Thank you also to everyone who purchased a ticket or made a monetary donation towards the space utilization study, and congratulations again to our winner!
