‘The Fonz’ Gets Key to the City

March 29, 2010 7:15 AM | Entertainment

Actor Henry Winkler (The Fonz) from “Happy Days” fame received the Key to the City from Mayor Sam Katz on Sunday.

Winkler received the honour for being a strong advocate for education and literacy. “Having grown up with undiagnosed dyslexia, he has since become a celebrated children’s author and a source of inspiration for children facing a learning disability,” the Mayor’s Office said.

The 64-year-old joins past recipients Milt Stegall, Sir Bob Geldof, and Jon Montgomery in receiving the key.

Winkler was in town for the 36th annual World of Wheels auto show at the Winnipeg Convention Centre.
