This year, the Henry County Library summer reading program theme will be "Every Hero has a Story" and in keeping with this theme, the featured display in the library gallery is one of the all time favorite heroes and good guys, Roy Rogers. Local law enforcement officer, Major Rob Hills of the Henry County Sheriffs Department, is the owner of numerous Roy Rogers memorabilia.
The Roy Rogers Show debuted on television December 30, 1951. It was a Western action/adventure series that was set in the fictional town of Mineral City in Paradise Valley. The 30-minute, black and white episodes were broadcast on Sunday evenings on the NBC network for six seasons. Roy Rogers, aka the King of the Cowboys, was surrounded by the supporting cast which include; Dale Rogers (Roy's real life wife) and her horse Buttermilk, Pat Brady and Nellybelle, the Jeep, Bullet the Wonder dog and of course Trigger, known as the Smartest Horse in the Movies.
The Roy Rogers display will be open for public viewing through the month of August. Stop by and relive the memories of a simpler time.
