Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)

Guy and Margaret Buck celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with an open house at 516 Alverson Blvd. Guests reminisced about the Bucks' wedding in the first chapel of Trinity Episcopal Church, which became the parish hall after the present church was completed.

Bill Daggett showed off his 12-pound, 2- ounce king salmon, which topped the field of 400 West Coast Telephone Derby anglers. Joe Smith took second place with an 11-pound, 4-ounce fish.

25 years ago (1988)

Now was the time to save $632 on a Duroboat Deal at Klein Power Equip. Co. on Evergreen Way. The price included the boat, motor, trailer and oars for $259 down and payments of $135 a month. Klein was open daily and Sunday for sales, service and parts.

Consumers rated Skippers No. 1 in a recently completed survey. A shrimp basket was $2.99, a fish sandwich and fries were $1.99, and a regular fish and fries were $1.99. Skippers was located at 1931 Broadway, 7318 Evergreen Way and 12810 4th Ave. W. in Everett, and at 1035 State Ave. in Marysville.
