"Our freedoms are not safe unless we as citizens interest ourselves in government, inform ourselves about it, and involve ourselves in it. That is precisely what Pachyderms are doing."
— Ronald Reagan
Free Government Requires Active Citizens' participation, for we are not ruled by the majority, but by the majority who vote.
We are a chapter of the National Grand Order of Pachyderm Clubs, affiliated with the Republican National Committee, and we coordinate with other Pachyderm clubs in the greater San Antonio area. Our mission is to provide a practical means for broad citizen participation in politics; to provide practical political education and dissemination of information on our political system and elected officials; to promote the development of potential leaders; to be involved with our community and assist in carrying out the purposes of the Republican Party whose purposes, we believe to include:
Providing leadership in government.
Protecting individual rights and freedom.
Promoting efficient government with a local emphasis.
Keeping the public informed on the status of their government.
Most of all promoting family, community, country and God.
