The "Reveille Sisters" came to delight the veterans in the Oak Cliff Lions Club on November 11, 2015, Veteran's Day, by singing tunes made famous by the Andrew Sisters. More than two dozen Oak Cliff Lions are veterans, and continue to serve their country by volunteering locally with the Lions Club. Guests are invited to the Wednesday noon meetings, or Thursday Networking Event on November 12, 2015

Veteran Honored, Oak Cliff Lions Club Members Enjoy a WWII Themed program on Veteran's Day

Awesome memories came to the Oak Cliff Lions Club  today as the Reveille Sisters performed for the veterans and Lions.

Kathy Lawson, Amy Morton, and Anna Marrie Warren make up the trio that sings songs made famous by the Andrew Sisters. The Andrew Sisters' harmonies and songs are still influential today, and have been covered by entertainers such as Bette Midler and Christina Aguilera. The group was inducted into Vocal Hall of Fame in 1998. The sisters became the most popular female vocal group of the first half of the 20th century. They are still widely acclaimed today for their famous close harmonies.

The Reveille Sisters began singing together in their church choir in Waxahachi over 18 years ago, and when asked to perform a few old songs for a group of veterans, found their niche.

Past President Lion Danny Boyce ran the program and began with gifts for the two WWII veterans, Lions Corky Harris and Dr. William Lawhorn. Each received a framed photo of "The Kiss" - a sailor kissing a nurse in the street during V-J Day - that Danny Boyce said for years was thought to be either Mr. Harris or Mr. Lawhorn. Harris, a navy man, admitted he joined the navy after the famous photo was taken. Dr. Lawhorn is currently featured in the November issue of the Oak Cliff Advocate as a part of a story entitled the "WWII Veterans: Members of the Greatest Generations are still thriving in our neighborhood."

The Lions will be hosting a Progressive Networking Event Thursday, November 12, 2015 in Trinity Groves. Any one interested in meeting the business men and business women of the Oak Cliff Lions Club can attend and learn about the many service opportunities the club offers. Many elected city officials, business owners and entrepteneurs are members of the club.
