Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)

Stan Wicklund, terminal manager for Garrett Freightlines Inc. in Everett said farewell to Chet Downes of Snohomish on Saturday when he retired after 36 years and some 175,000 miles of truck driving. Wicklund was an honored guest at a dinner at the Seahorse.

Another retiree was Gordon Hovik, who was leaving the Everett Fire Department. On hand at a dinner-dance at the Monte Cristo were Chief Bill Kidder and Capt. Earl Anderson, president of Everett Local of the Firefighters Union.

25 years ago (1988)

Mae Kipperberg, Jerrie White and Betty Wade were working at the Extension Homemakers Council's annual Holiday Flair arts and crafts show at the Snohomish County Cooperative Extension office in Everett. They were pooling their talents to raise money for college scholarships.

The Snohomish Community Theater was staging a dessert social and raffle in the newly restored Waltz Building in Snohomish to raise funds for 1989 productions. Admission was free. Ron Alldredge was president of the organization.
