Osmund Kvithammer would be vice president of Everett Junior College’s Associated Men Students next year. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. H. Kvithammer, 1514 Hoyt Ave. Elections were last week.

25 years ago (1987)

A Herald article profiled Snohomish County Executive Willis Tucker.

Friends of a Lynnwood leukemia victim labored on a roof under a broiling sun, the first of a series for fundraising projects to help defray expenses. The donated labor raised by applying the new roof would be added to the Lynn Parsons Leukemia Fund, established at the Rainier Bank Lynnwood branch. Tim Wright and Jon Roenig were among the workers.
