With 55 years to his credit as a volunteer at the Plumas- Sierra County Fair, he has earned the appreciation of not only the fairgrounds staff and fair participants, but an award. "In recognition of over 55 years of volunteer work for the Plumas-Sierra County Fair, we would like to honor Mr. Don Johns, also referred to as Mr. History, with this token of our appreciation," said Mike Clements, chief ex- ecutive officer for the Plumas-Sierra County Fair. A plaque from the fair was presented to Johns during a brief ceremony Saturday, Aug. 11. Although not a native of Ptumas County, when Johns moved to the area as a young man to take a job in Meadow Valley, he quickly adopted the county. And since that time, he's made the county's history and places part of his venue. As a director with the Plumas County Museum Board of Directors, Johns has dedicated himself to helping others learn about history and preserving it.
