Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1964)

Murray Campbell was nominated for president of the Everett Chamber of Commerce for the year beginning Oct. 1. His nomination was approved unanimously along with that of Ray Sidley, first vice president; Bill Moore, second vice president; and Dave Parton, treasurer.

Susan E. Urbick, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Norman R. Urbick, Route 3, Snohomish, had enlisted in the Women’s Army Corps. A 1964 graduate of Snohomish High School, she was receiving dental assistant’s training at Fort Sam Houston, Texas.

25 years ago (1989)

Loni and John Gray checked out a piece of furniture they might buy. Al Eastman, complete with a singsong chant and hand motions was the auctioneer. Yvonne and Merle McKinney waved their bidding card. The price was right and the deals were fast at Eastman’s Auctioneer Service at Frontier Village in Lake Stevens.

It was time to put in a call to Inspector Poulet of the French (Fried) Secret Police. Once again someone had plucked the chicken mascot at the Chicken Drive-In near Frontier Village. Jean Kiniry, owner of the restaurant, expect its return soon; it happened every year as a high school prank.
