50 YEARS AGO (1959)

Among the many new improvements at the Bon Marche Everett, which was officially opened its all-new store tomorrow, were display windows on the street floor. The windows enabled customers to view fashions and other displays from all sides.

Orville F. Peterson of Route 2, East Stanwood, was the new member of the Snohomish County committee for the Farmers Home Administration. He succeeded John Ward Lawler of Route 2, Snohomish, whose three-year term expired. Peterson had operated a Grade A dairy northeast of Stanwood for 23 years.

25 YEARS AGO (1984)

Doug Blume was the new director of the Everett Boys’ &Girls’ Club. The Kansan-born 26-year-old was brought from Lewiston, Idaho. Blume said he enjoyed working with kids. He would also direct several fund-raisers. He hoped to see his twin brother a little more too. Dave, formerly a coach with the Mariner’s Bellingham team, was a scout for the M’s.

Bickford Ford-Mercury, between Everett and Snohomish on Old Highway 2, had a coupon for an air-conditioning service special. The special was $29.95 plus Freon and tax. Bickford “fixed cars for keeps.”
