Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)
Leonard and Lena Rochon and their daughter Theresa met with Elizabeth Killien, Theresa's second grade teacher at Our Lady of Perpetual Help School. Parent-teacher conferences were being instigated at Perpetual's elementary and junior high this year. Parents had a chance to meet their children's homeroom teachers to discuss growth.

Construction on the Tacoma-Everett Freeway was making progress through Mountlake Terrace. A new overpass was completed at 220th Street and Melody Hill School had given up several acres of its playground site for the route of the proposed eight-lane highway.

25 years ago (1988)
Morgan's Bible and Music of Lynnwood had opened a new branch in Greentree Plaza on Everett Mall Way. The Everett store would also carry books, Bibles, music, gifts, cards and church items. Carole Morgaza was the owner.

Magic touch Tile Inc. was a new retail floor-covering store located at Frontier village in Lake Stevens. It sold and installed tile, carpet, laminates, hardwood, linoleum and more. Danny and Loretta Smith and Steve and Jezette Smith were the owners. Danny Smith was managing the new business.
