Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)

Ethel M. Flowers, supervisor at the Snohomish County office of the state Department of Public Assistance, was honored recently at a reception for her master's degree in social work. Arranging the celebration, attended by 30 friends, were Esther McChesney and Margaret Kepley.

Ribbon-cutting ceremonies sponsored by the Arlington and Stanwood chambers of commerce would be held at the new Peterson Bridge, which crossed the Stillaguamish River, and the Larson Bridge, which spanned Cook's Slough on Happy Hollow Road.

25 years ago (1988)

Hundreds of people helped Everett Community College dedicate its new building yesterday. The structure was named the Gary Parks Student Union Building, for the Everett firefighter who died fighting the blaze in the previous building.

With a little luck, more arctic terns would find a home in Everett and like it well enough to move in. Seven members of the Pilchuck Audubon Society began readying the new home on Jetty Island yesterday. Jan Carroll, leader of the project, said terns were known to nest on the island beginning some 10 years ago.
