It’s Women’s History Month, and students at Mountlake Terrace High School have been studying the accomplishments of women. They plan “A Celebration of Women in History” 6:30-9 p.m. Thursday at the school, 21801 44th Ave. W.
There will be a scene from the musical “Quilters,” an all-female show about the accomplishments and hardships of American women; a performance by an all-girl jazz band made up of Mountlake Terrace High School students; and dances by famed choreographer Martha Graham.
History classes will show films, and women of the year will be named.
It’s a small world on the high seas
The World War II landing ship tank USS Snohomish County was featured on Page B3 Friday.
Turns out it’s a small world on the sea.
A former skipper of the Snohomish County lives in Marysville. Commander James Wilson was at the helm from 1967 to 1969. The ship served the U.S. Navy from World War II through Vietnam.
We were also happy to hear that the Fleet Reserve Association, Branch 170, has the USS Snohomish County ribbon board and plank on display in Everett. Though the ship was sold for scrap, it’s good to know a small part of it remains for posterity.
