Hawkins honored at DAR lunch
Janet Hawkins, Nevada State Regent of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, was honored Nov. 11 in Southern Nevada. A luncheon was held at the Reflection Bay Golf Course, hosted by the regents of the four southern chapters, Silver State Chapter, Valley of Fire Chapter, Francisco Garces Chapter and Old Spanish Trail Chapter.
After luncheon, attended by over 50 members and guests, Hawkins was introduced and spoke on “A State Regent’s Life from Election to November 2000.” Afterward, each chapter presented her with a donation to her project (preserving Nevada’s DAR records) or a donation in her name to one of her favorite committees or schools.
Raffle drawings were held. The meeting closed with a tribute to Veteran’s Day, with a solo of “God Bless America” sung by Virginia H. Garrison, Valley of Fire Chapter.
