Seems Like Yesterday

50 YEARS AGO (1959)

Everett Fire Capt. Bill Wood helped Perry Wiggum load toys into his car for delivery to First Congregational Church. The toys would be distributed to church families in need. Assisting this year were personnel at Crescent Service, Steve’s Cycle Shop and women residents in the Cascadian Apartments.

The hustle and bustle of shopping was over and all was quiet in Everett. Keri, 6, and Vicki, 5, daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Brian Corcoran, had candles in their windows to help Santa Claus find his way.

25 YEARS AGO (1984)

The following students at Snohomish High School were named “Panthers of the Quarter” for the first quarter: sophomores Christy Buck, daughter of Gary and Jana Buck, and Nick Valison, son of George and Pat Valison; juniors Eric Bozinny, son of John Bozinny, and Jodi Hillman, daughter of Lorna and Verdell Hillman; seniors Andrea Dunbar, daughter of Glenn and Elaine Dunbar, and Jon Edmonds, son of the Rev. Richard and Judy Edmonds.
