TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (WTXL) - A group of local women were honored for their community service work Saturday afternoon. 10 women were recognized at the inaugural Dr. Eva Wanton Recognition Luncheon.

Dr. Wanton died last year, but her legacy is still remembered here in Tallahassee. As the founding Dean of Famu's school of General Studies,

her legacy is honored with a recognition luncheon sponsored by the Leon County Charmettes.

For the past 37 years the Leon County Charmettes have provided assistance to needy individuals through volunteer activities. Each year, the organization spotlights local women who they feel live up to the group's mission.

The Charmettes, incorporated is a national civic organization created more than 5 decades ago.
