HENRY — On Monday, June 15, members of the Henry Events Committee were presented the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution Community Service Award for their outstanding service to the city of Henry. The presentation by the Chief Senachwine DAR Chapter was held at the Central Park in Henry prior to the Brown-Bag-It event, featuring Dan Neff and Jim Selquist.

The committee also works with the American Legion on the Fourth of July activities and organizes the Cruise-In for Henry, an all-day car display event in the park with food vendors and activities. In addition, the group plans and arranges other events as might arise for Henry.

Chief Senachwine Community Service Awards Chairman Nancy Gillfillan lauded the hard work of the committee and introduced committee members: Pat Williams, Adelaide Kern, Mary Jane Thornton, Amy Hernandez and Tom Bogner. Member Darla Eckert was absent. Members expressed pleasure at this first public recognition given to the Henry Events Committee.

Chief Senachwine Chapter Regent Dolores Dace presented copies of the National DAR Community Service Award to the committee members.
