About Our Chapter
NCL, Inc., Lone Star Chapter is a group of mothers and daughters who have come together in a commitment to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences.
Members shall reside in Rockwall County. Like all NCL, Inc. Chapters, Lone Star aims to foster the mother-daughter relationship by serving its communities together.
The Lone Star Chapter received official charter status as the 23rd chapter (nationwide) and the very first NCL Chapter in Texas on May 4, 1983. Our members have served the Rockwall community aiding local organizations in our works, perpetuating courtesy and concern for our neighbors for over 40 years.
We are very proud of the tradition, determination, and perseverance of our Chapter through the years as we foster the mother-daughter relationship. Lone Star Chapter recently celebrated our 40th anniversary and we look forward to celebrating many other milestones as the Lone Star Chapter continues to grow!
