Ronald Johnson’s Legacy


JAXCC thanks Judy Johnson, retired teacher and grandmother for donating 25 chess sets to be used for scholastic events. Judy's husband, Ronald, had purchased the sets many years ago for use in a school program. When the school ended the chess program they contacted her to see if she wanted them back. At her husband's request, she collected them and they sat in storage for years. Upon Ronald's passing she thought about placing them in the hands of people who would get the most use knowing he would have wanted that too. She called us and we had the pleasure of meeting her and accepting the donation. The sets are in excellent condition, considering their age, with 25 boards and triple weighted pieces individually bagged. A wonderful gift that will be put to good use for years to come. Thank you, Judy and Ronald.
