The Haws Corp. hosted a gala celebration of its 100th anniversary at the Siena Hotel Spa & Casino in Reno, NV, in October. The black-tie event was attended by 350 Haws customers, sales representatives, past and present employees, suppliers and other special guests. One of the highlights of the evening was an appearance by the company’s founder, Luther Haws, the inventor of the first commercial drinking fountain, as portrayed by actor Larry Elliott (pictured). “Luther” recounted the history of the company, supported by museum products and appropriate visual references.
