The Alvarado Pioneer and Old Settlers Reunion last weekend was outstanding! The Friends of the Johnson County Historical Commission had a booth there on Saturday and we met a lot of Johnson County folks. With the help of my grandson, Colten Stetka, we held down the fort and spread the word about our organization. Colt's Mom and Dad were a huge help too.

Thanks to Johnson County‘s own Henry Grady Cheek and his family, we now have the actual newspaper pages for when WWII started and when Japan surrendered! Henry was in the Navy and served in the Pacific theater during the war.

 

Thanks for the loan and thanks for your service, Henry!
