Hawthorne Hall Of Fame Dinner


Our Hawthorne Hall Of Fame Dinner was a total success on Friday night at the Hawthorne civic center. The dinner was a complete sellout with Hawthorians, past and present, who came to honor our inaugural inductees into the Hawthorne Hall of Fame; Adolf Leuzinger, Jack Northrop, Hawthorne Nursery, Chris Montez, and Hal Chauncey. Tim McCandless, great grandson of Adolf Leuzinger and Janet Northrop, granddaughter of Jack Northrop were there to accept these posthumous awards. Janet Nakai and other Nakai family members accepting for Hawthorne Nursery, Chris Montez and Hal Chauncey along with their family accepting for themselves. Many interesting and anecdotal stories were told by recipients and friends.
Also historical videos on our recipients were provided and written by Jerry Miles who graduated from Hawthorne High in 1966. Jerry's videos were a big success and will provide a historic link between our inductees and the city of Hawthorne for decades to come. Thanks Jerry for your time and dedication in making and providing these historic videos. These videos will be on sale in the next couple of weeks right here on the website.
A special thank you to the Hawthorne Historical Society members; Norb Huber, Dick and Alice Huhn, Al and Betty Richards, Thierry Lubenic, Lee Leonard, Don McIntire, David Brager, and Tom Quintana for making this a very special night. Thanks also to our inductees and their families, and to our attendees for a very special night...our very first Hawthorne Hall of Fame Dinner.
