Chester Henry: A Look at a True Hall of Famer

In anticipation of the announcement of our 2014 Hall of Fame inductees, here's a story about one of our earliest, Chester Henry of the Illinois State Police.

Our friend, Ron Warnick, who runs Route 66 News recently pointed us to a terrific story in the Bloomington Pantagraph about one of our earliest Hall of Famers, Chester Henry, who was inducted in 1993. Chester is 82 years old now and happily enjoying his retirement from law enforcement.

Read Ron's recap of the article on Route 66 News, Route 66's Lifeguard.

This year's new group of Hall of Famers will be inducted at our annual Hall of Fame Banquet which will be held on June 14 in Lincoln, IL. Register here to attend this year's Hall of Fame Banquet.
