Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)
Dave Parton, of the Everett Kiwanis Club, gave instructions to Marcia Baer and Paul Kapler of North Junior High School about selling tickets for the club's annual Pancake Festival. Proceeds from the sale were used by the Kiwanis for charitable services in the community.

The Everett School District's new service center was rising rapidly on its site at 48th Street between Colby and Rucker avenues. Scheduled for occupancy by Jan. 1, it would replace quarters at the old Jefferson School, which was facing destruction to accommodate the new post office. Architects for the service center were Hall & Dykeman.

25 years ago (1988)
Members of Snohomish High School's marching band stepped to the beat of "War from Rocky IV" yesterday in Snohomish's Veterans Stadium. About 2,000 musicians from Washington and Oregon marching bands competed in the first Cascade Sound Marching Band championship, sponsored by the Cascade Sound Booster Club and hosted by the Cascade High School marching bank.

West Coast Raising in Marysville advised people not to replace sunken concrete, but raise it. They could raise patios, garages, sidewalks, basements, driveways, cottages and factory floors.
