Seems Like Yesterday

Security Copy Co. Inc., 4931 Evergreen Way (B&M Shopping Center), announced the appointment of Robert A. McClure as general manager, effective immediately. McClure was returning to the Northwest where he lived for four years after his service in the Armed Forces in 1950. He brought 13 years to the graphic arts and production field.

Smart Leprechauns knew that Taylor's Landing at the Mukilteo ferry dock was the place to be to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Starting at noon on the 17th they were featuring piping hot Irish stew served in a fresh sourdough bowl and corned beef and cabbage. They also had drinks to warm the Irish soul.
