The guest of honor was Mayor Mark Allen of Peoria Heights (pictured here next to Dr. Johnson). Although Johnson Family Chiropractic is in Peoria and is several blocks south of the Peoria Heights border, Mayor Allen graciously arrived at the festivities on behalf of the village. The Peoria Heights Chamber of Commerce was also represented at the event, as were the Peoria Journal Star newspaper and the Times family of newspapers. Also welcome and present were some patients and patient families.
After the ribbon-cutting was complete, Dr. Johnson explained the purpose of the Activator adjustment and gave tours of the office. A special highlight of the tour was each person's personal experience of the Activator thrust: "Surprisingly gentle," said one. Exactly!
Our thanks go out to all who made this celebration possible: my lovely wife Wendy Johnson (the cookie cook), the Peoria Area Chamber of Commerce, the Peoria Heights Chamber of Commerce, and Mayor Allen. Here's looking forward to the 10-year-anniversary of the occasion!
