First Ladies of Nevada Film Program
The NWHP First Ladies film program was held October 15th at the Gold Hill Hotel. Following a delicious buffet, over forty dinner participants retired to the hotel’s “Great Hall” to view the film, The First Ladies of Nevada 1959‐1999‐Interviews of seven First Ladies who lived in the Governor’s Mansion. The women, Bette Sawyer, Jackalyn Laxalt, Carolyn O’Callaghan, Kathy Kist, Bonnie Bryan, Sandy Miller and Dema Guinn each spoke candidly of their experiences while living in the Carson City’s Governor’s Mansion and in fulfilling their roles of First Lady of Nevada.
A raffle was also held that included an interesting group of baskets composed of all Nevada themed items. These items ranged from “Made in Nevada” food items to a “well used in Nevada” antique duck decoy and collectible Nevada themed books.
