PAGE 12 SHELTON--MASON COUNTY JOURNAL-- Published in "Christmas]own, U.,.A. '', Shelton, Washintan J 1N'I -+  ....................................................................... + __ WALTER ECKERTS CELEBRATE 59 YEARS OF MARRIAGE gratulations are Eekert who can and Mrs. Walter now proudly acclaim 59 years of '  +'. v ! ' i wedded bliss. To celebrate this rarely attained the beginning of their return trip three days late]- she attended an- 98546., Everyone in Grapeview will anniversary, Walter and Augusta drove to Tacoma last Tuesday, June 18. where they spent the day. Dinner in Purdy at their fav- orite spot was included on their return trip and upon arriving home daughter Ann had a luscious des- sert of strawberry shortcake awaiting them. Other guests help- ing the Eekerts celebrate this part of the event were grandson Bob and wife Shirley, great grand- children Lori. Mike and Steve, and Tom Carrel of Oak Harbor. SUNDAY, after enjoying "din- ner out" at Purdy, the Eekerts at- fended the Golden Wedding anni- versary of their long-time friends Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Brones. The reception, which was held in the church parlor m Vaughn. afforded the Eekerts. not only the oppor- tunity to eongral.ulate their friends but also a chance to visit with many olher long-time friends. Jnne must certainly be commu- nity improvement month in Grape- viex'. Otlr community's favorite "shopping center" the Grapeview Grocery is proudly showing off a brand new summer dress in the form of new vertical siding, paint- ed a cool charcoal gray. To catch the eye in the evening and on throug h the night, grocer Julie Stock has installed an illuminat- ing automatic earbon-are.street lamp just north of the post office and the toLal effect I must say. is mighty purty! Adding to the nighttime lighting is a second lamp, recently purchased by the volunteer fire department and sta- tioned just outside the fire hall. The Orville Kagers have also re- cently installed one of these fine lamps at the rear of their tretch Island home where it is doing an excellent job of lighting the garden and drive areas. On the mainland the C. E+ Carters are enjoying the convenience of this highly ef- ficient type of lighting also. THE BEAU'rIIPYING project at the )ost office and grocery have been keeping postmaster Julie out of mischief while "the little wo- man" visits in South Dakota with daughter J'ackie and husband. Helping to keep him from getting too lonesome the past two weeks has been young friend Denny lIooPe from Tacoma. Another project adding to the beauty of Stretch Island is hwing Rowe's new cement bulkhead: an lmpresmve addition to an already ttractive home. TWO MORE building projects are getting underway in the neigh- borhood too. George and Ruby Lewis have begun construction of a new home just south of the old homestead. On Treasm'e Island, after sev- eral years of planning" and pre- paring, the AI Linderman tamily of Tacoma have started to build StlnllTler home one lot south of the Ed Millers'. The Don Johnstons were delight- ed to have an adequately func- tioning well after only 52 feet of drilling. This will be quite an ad- dition to the conveniences offered by their cozy beach house on the west shore of Soules' Cove. TIlE SWAN :MaRls added to the trend of improvements by hav- ing a new septic tank installed last week. The Howard Somers' residence rmw has a new cement patio afront the basement area as well as a much improved arm enlarged driveway, facillitating entrances from either approach. A vacation of almost a month came to an end for the Jubie Hicks family when they returned to the Gra peview home last Thllrsday ev- ening. Having,left Grapeview ear- ly Saturday morning, May 25, Jubie, Virginia and their four children, Clifford. Alice. Kathy and David, began the first leg of their journey.

A two-day stop- over in the wonderoua Yellowstone National Park where the geysers, the beat' population and an appeal- ingly awkward baby moose made very good subject matter for their camera and was the last malor stop of their trip before they re- turned home having fully enjoye.q the entire vacation Meanwhile "back on the ranch". Virginig's folks, Mr. and Mrs. My- ron Polk made a command decis- ion and bough[ themselves a brand new red Volkswagen camper. Their first outing of any consequence was made last Thursday when they drove to Aberdeen to attend a four-day VFW convention. Camp- ing at a trailer camp near Ocean Shores, they took advantage of the early mornmg razor clam tides to seek out the juicy morsels and "later in the day attended the VFW meetings.
