Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)

Everett firefighter R. Cameron presented a check, a gift from Everett Fire Fighters Local 350, to E. Don Moe, director of Parkland Children's Home. The money would be used to purchase gifts for the children. The fireighters made a similar presentation to officials at the Deaconess Home.

Members of the Messiah Lutheran Church Walther League were presenting a live nativity scene on the church lawn at State Avenue and Colby Road in Marysville. Participating in the presentation were Penni Marsch, John Buffington, Ann Gesme and Sharon Starck.

25 years ago (1988)

The North Everett Lions Club served between 700 and 800 dinners to seniors and needy folks earlier this month. The annual dinner was funded by proceeds from the Everett Bingo Parlor, which was operated by the Lions Club.

Three sailors from the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson helped paint an elementary school building and distribute supplies to an orphanage and other schools in Thailand during a recent port stop. They were Fireman Stephen R. Cote and Chief Petty Officer Robert S. Axtell, both of Everett, and Airman Robert L. Beebe of Marysville.
