Daryl Buhr, 17, accepted his Eagle Scout emblem from Vern Luby at a Court of Honor for Troop 6 and Explorer Post 6 in the First Congregational Church. Daryl began his Scouting experience in 1955 with the Whittier School Cub Pack. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Buhr, 1025 Wetmore Ave.

First Impressions opened at 710 Ash Ave., No. A in Marysville last November. The firm specialized in mantle surrounds and caps. It also did custom built-in woodworking. Glenn R. Whitely was the owner and Del Steinhorst was the manager.
