Emma’s Bar was chosen as a gathering spot because it was established by Emma Matzek and her husband, Stanley Johnson in 1934. Emma is the daughter of Theresa and Wenzel Matzek Jr. Emma’s Bar is currently under the ownership of Emma’s son, Lynn Johnson.

Look for more information on the reunion in next week's River Falls Journal.
