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."
