Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1962)
Winners in the Lake Stevens Christmas decorations contest were announced by the Lake Stevens Garden Club. They were Mr. and Mrs. Gus Anderson, trees; Mrs. Phyllis Brattain, doors; Mr. and Mrs. Harry Woodford, windows; Mrs. And Mrs. Lloyd Anderson, seasonal theme; Mr. and Mrs. Gayle Whitsell, dock; and Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Sherin, eaves.

25 years ago (1987)

Marble Thomas, a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary No. 2100 in Everett, with the help of Sharon Hoerr and her daughter, Deann, answered 35 letters to Santa received at the Everett Post Office.
