It was a privilege to have Fred Morris in attendance at the recent Veterans Hall of Fame Tribute. Fred is a veteran of World War II and has donated his uniform to the Lake Odessa Museum. This photo shows Fred posing next to his uniform as we recognize his service to our country. Thank you to Fred and to many others who have donated items to make our military display so great! The collection continues to expand as we relate the history of our local veterans.


The Lake Odessa Area Historical Society is pleased to announce the selection of Kenneth LeRoy Johnson as the newest veteran honored as part of the Veteran's Hall of Fame. Kenneth was nominated by his children: Melody (Johnson) LaNew, Mike Johnson, John Johnson and Teri (Johnson) Duda who are shown above receiving the 2010 Veterans Hall of Fame Certificate. The tribute, which was held on May 28, was well attended with many others attending over the week-end. There were many new displays and those who brought items relating the military history of our local veterans. A complete history of Kenneth Johnson will be posted on this site soon.....we are honored to pay tribute to him and all our veterans!!
