Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)

Maureen Susan Dwyer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur K. Dwyer, 4723 Carlton Road, was presented the national Torch Bearer in Social Leadership award, the highest honor a member of the Camp Fire girls organization could receive.

Washington State Liquid Fertilizer Dealers Association awarded Ken Migchelbrink of Marysville, a junior in Agronomy at Washington State University, a $250 scholarship to help him continue his education during the next school year.

25 years ago (1988)

Frank Nelson, 80, was tilling his Mukilteo garden which was about the same age he was. Nelson used a cultivator that his mother purchased when he was a child. She walked down to Mukilteo and took a boat called the Island Flyer to Everett where she bought the cultivator. Then she wheeled it down Hewitt Avenue to the boat to take home.

An advertisement urged people to switch from electricity to natural gas. Dealers were Valley Natural Gas in Everett, Natural Gas Equipment in Everett and Marysville, G&S Heating in Snohomish and Monroe, Olympic Mechanical in South County and Thomas Heating in Bothell and Woodinville.
