He was a member pf the School Board for Fonda school, when it was in existence..
He was a hard worker, although slightly limited by what he could do as a result of poorly healed burn scars suffered when he was a young child. The burns were caused when he was playing with matches..
A family legend also relates a time when he was about 35 years old he joined a group of kids taking an outhouse from a property and dumping it into a ditch. Alvey used his pickup to move the outhouse. On the way to the dump site he was met by the owner of the outhouse and they stopped and talked for awhile. The owner thought that Alvey had a load of lumber in the pickup and never knew it was his outhouse..
