J. Reuben Clark Law Society

Southern Comfort Food with Judge Monroe G. McKay
and a Tour of Historic McKay Home

On June 10, 2016, the Ogden, Utah Chapter of the Law Society with members of the Weber County Bar Association and Rex E. Lee Inns of Court, gathered at the home of Chad McKay, the former home of K. Gunn McKay, for a social with Tenth Circuit Court Judge Monroe G. McKay.

Chad McKay, a local Ogden attorney, is the son of Gunn McKay and nephew of Judge McKay. Chad opened his home to nearly fifty attorneys for homemade root beer, southern comfort food, and an evening of stories and fun with Judge McKay.

The attorneys who attended were able to tour the home of President David O. McKay which is situated next door to the Gunn McKay home. President David O. McKay and K. Gunn McKay were cousins.

This event came about as the Ogden Chapter brainstormed ways to bring a larger group of attorneys together. In exploring ideas it was decided to do something in Huntsville, the largest town in the beautiful Ogden Valley. Chad McKay capitalized on some personal connections and offered his home. It was a great location for history and a group event. Judge McKay was wonderful to interact with.  He has an engaging personality and tremendous stories about the local area and specifically the David O. Mckay and Gunn McKay homes.

The Ogden Chapter is looking forward to doing the event next year.
