Photo Galleries > Celebrating Helen Thomas, November 7, 2013

ANWC members and guests old and new gathered on November 7, 2013 at the Clubhouse to celebrate and raise our glasses to ANWC legend Helen Thomas while dedicating our piano room to her. Member Susan Nelson played the piano, lifetime Honorary Member and past recipient of the EIJ award Eleanor Clift spoke along with friends and family Ginny Daly, Past President, and Helen's neice Terri Deleon and her daughter Helen's grand niece Genevieve Deleon. Member Patty Raine's momentous illustration of all the US presidents since John Kennedy surrounding Helen at the piano now lives forever on the wall in the new Helen Thomas Room. A good time was had by all. Rest in peace Helen Thomas knowing your legacy lives at the ANWC. Photos by Neshan Naltchayan
