An Indiana soybean pioneer from Avon will be honored with a special event on amateur radio in Danville on Saturday, June 11.

Adrian Parsons was an Avon area farmer who first brought soybeans to Indiana in the 1880s, and promoted their cultivation among Hoosier farmers in the ensuing years.

To help commemorate Hendricks County's role during Indiana's Bicentennial year, ham radio operators will be set up during the day on June 11 at the Gazebo in Ellis Park in Danville.

There's lots to do: set up antennas, operate, log, and generally have a good time. The weather should be excellent.
