Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)
Opening tomorrow in its new building on the southeast corner of Pacific and Colby avenues was Snohomish County Title Co. It planned to inaugurate its $350,000 structure in bang-up style by having officials break through a special “break-way” door. Elmer Husby was president of the firm.

Among those meeting for the annual charter night observance reunion of those involved in sponsoring Sea Scout Ship No. 1 by the Everett Yacht Club were Fred Shaw Sr., Bruce Winston, Carol Boynton, Ernie Gallagher, Charles Martin and Bob Phillips.

25 years ago (1989)
A new house under construction on Edgemoor Lane had a smiley face. After fellow workers noted how the windows resembled eyes, John Wood completed the visage with a can of spray paint. Wood said, with a laugh, that he should’ve painted a frown.

The bunny was a little early for Easter but just right for brunch. Joe Borovina gave his balloon a rabbit punch as friend and neighbor Ben Challman looked on. The bunny gave Sara Crane a fuzzy hug. It was all part of a fundraiser for Providence Hospital Children’s Center held at Arne’s Restaurant in Mukilteo.

By Jack O’Donnell from Herald archives at the Everett Public Library
