Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)

Gwendolyn Shakespeare, 3131 Rockefeller Ave., had been elected president of the Department of Washington, American Legion Auxiliary. Shakespeare, a teacher in Everett, came by her leadership naturally. Her mother Lulu, whom she lived with, was a past national president of the Auxiliary to the United Spanish War Veterans.

To have the proper background for the outing they were planning on Hat Island, the picnic committee of Snohomish County Bankers got together on Paul Shew's boat, Shu-Shu. They were Kent Sutton, Linda Campbell, Jerry Blomquist, Dennis Dunn, Fred Branson, Ruth Bratten and Charles Elliott. Also on the committee was Ruby Jolly.

25 years ago (1988)

Soon miners in Alaska would be warmed and refreshed in portable utility buildings assembled at Norton Terminal on Port Gardner. Fourteen mini-modules, built by the Haskell Corp., were ready to load on an ocean-going barge bound for Kivalina, Alaska, northeast of the Bering Strait.

Holiday World at 12620 Highway 99 S. in Everett was having a clearance sale. The 1989 Ramblers were here, so the 1988s had to go. They also advertised used models ranging in price from $2,795.00 to $54,500.00.
