The irrepressible 86 years young, Hettie Lou Brooks, was keynote speaker for the 2017 Garland County TEA Party Patriot Awards Banquet at the Five Star Dinner Theatre in Hot Springs, Arkansas on January 27, 2017. (Hettie Lou was awarded the group’s Patriots Lifetime Achievement Award last year, but was unable to attend because of a hospitalization.)

Enthusiastic, energetic, entertaining, and challenging, her thoughts about the meaning of patriotism were spot-on target for her attentive TEA Party audience. Historical anecdotes reinforced her message that modern American patriots must be engaged in government, in schools, and in the marketplace to be effective in educating others, and in restoring what has been lost of the essential American values of our founding fathers.
