Last Tuesday, December 14, 2021, Keith Johnson of McHenry, representing the A.D. Johnson Foundation, presented the McHenry Riverwalk Foundation with a donation that is earmarked to build a seat wall on the large bluestone circle at Miller Point.
Mayor Wayne Jett and President John J. Smith both commended the Johnson’s and the AD Johnson Foundation and their generous gift, commenting that donations such as these are the backbone of what makes McHenry special.
Hopefully by next summer we will have a beautiful new seat wall providing seating for the various events that take place at Miller Point, now known as the McHenry Riverwalk District.
