Honoring a couple who keeps history alive

Dr. Jerry Shey and his wife, Jean, believe in keeping history alive.

“When I talked to Jean this morning she wanted to send out the message that we need to support these organizations and these museums,” said Kossuth County Historical Society President Jan Ricke, during an interview at the Wells Fargo Museum on Monday, April 1. “This is our history. If we don’t keep the history, it will be gone.”

The Sheys will be honored during museum week in June. Members from the historical society, POW Museum and Kossuth County Agriculture and Motorsports Museum shared their experiences with what the Sheys have accomplished in Algona over the years.
