Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)

Plenty of muscle was needed yesterday afternoon to move a huge 90 mm cannon into place at the south entrance to Legion Memorial park. The cannon, obtained from the Washington state National Guard, was donated by the Everett American Legion Post as a permanent reminder to the citizens that it was the Legion that founded the park in 1936.

Snohomish Lions Art Johnson and Reginald Arkinstall started loading wood onto a truck for transportation to Hill Park, Snohomish, sight of the club’s pit-barbecue beef feed this Sunday.

25 years ago (1989)

Robert Bauer had opened a new accounting firm at 2911 Bond St., Suite 105. He was formerly with Langabeer, McKernon, Bayer and Co. Gayla Rathbun and Vicki Hollingsworth were joining him at his new firm. They offered a full range of auditing, accounting, tax and litigation support services.

Bob Smith was pushing a shopping cart full of items destined for a pawn shop on Oakes Avenue. Also known as Handy Bob, he said liked repairing lamps the best but could do anything. He could also be called Lucky Bob, as he reported recently winning the sweepstakes.
