I so enjoyed speaking at the July 5th Greater Kingsport Tennessee Republican Women "Women Who Make A Difference" luncheon. Peggy Snapp. President of GKRW, presented me with a lovely certificate as we celebrated July 4th with my DAR award-winning song "Wives of the Signers" (of the Declaration of Independence) and toasted the steady hands and hearts of the women who helped birth our country. A typical July 4, 1776 luncheon was served along with Abigail and John Adams' favorite dessert, " Apple Pan Dowdy." Our friend, brilliant photographer, Jeffrey Stoner brought some of his unique images, and dear friend, Carol Heimbach was on hand for the celebration. Several candidates for the Tennessee senate attended. I'm casting my vote for Tony Shipley and his lovely, talented wife, Susan.
