The Aberdeen Revitalization Movement (A.R.M.) contacted Johnny for ways to get people to stop in Aberdeen and possibly beautify the downtown area. He returned a proposal for the Downtown Walk of Fame which would consist of “famous” Harborites. He was going through kidney surgeries at the time so he could not be present for most of the meetings in the development. And though it didn’t turn out exactly how he envisioned it, it still turned out pretty great.
