OO In eves il A native of Washington, Mrs. Violet Getty was born in Sumas. When she was two years old her parents purchased, in co-ownership with her uncle, a farm in the San Juan Islands near Richardson. There they raised sheep and horses, and there, when Violet Getty was five years old, her mother was killed when a horse ran away with the buggy in which she was riding. Mrs. Getty's three-year-old sister and her 11-year old brother were taken into the home of Mrs. Rachel Knott, who had been a close friend of the children's nlother. "They had been friends in the East,'" Violet Getty explains, "and they came West together." l, or two years Violet remained with her father, after which she, too, joined Miss K nott's household, where she lived trom 1918 until 1932. Rachel Knott, who was a registered nurse, owned a farm called Sunnybeach, which was located ten miles east of Olympia. Also in residence was Dr. Mary M. Huxley, a physician. Two convalescent patients were cared for on the premises. Upon Violet's marriage to John D.

Page 6 - Shelton-Mason County Journal - Thursday, August 26, 1971 erves nnlversary One charter member and seven past presidents attended the 25th anniversary meeting and noon potluck luncheon of the Union Civic Club held in the Union Fire Hall Aug. 6. Guests were Orabelle Avey of Potlatch, Lila Scheel of Olympia, Tillie Sherman of Bremerton, Ella May Clark of Nashville, Tenn. and Jean Moore, Marjorie Bittle Stairs, Elaine Cook and Helen Timm of Union. The program for the day was a partial history presented by Wanda Wyatt Nilson, the only charter member still residing in Union, who said: "The first meeting of the group that was to become the Union Ladies Civic Club (now Union Civic Club) was held at the home of Mrs. Pauline Winne 25 years ago today, on August 6, 1946. "There was a need for organized help at the local school and in our community. In order to get the club started, Mrs. Winne sent invitations to the women who were associated with the Sunday School in Union, for she knew they were interested in young people. "This was the first of many potluck luncheons. Charter members were: Edith Lamon, Iness Irvine, Wanda Wyatt, Velma Bittle and Pauline Winne. "The object was to provide a social outlet for members; to promote children's activities; and to further community welfare. Membership was open at that time only to residents of the Union School District No. 10. "First elected officers were: President, Pauline Winne; Vice President, Velma Bittle; Secretary, Iness Irvine; Treasurer, Edith Lamon; Assistant Secretary & Treasurer, Wanda Wyatt. "Standing committees of publicity chairman, historian and flower fund were established. "Enrolled at the second meeting were new members Eleanor Buechel, Mrs. Snyder, Mrs. Nosworthy, Bessie Mawson and Diane Walker. "Meetings were planned for once a month with meeting place planned by the hostess; the first several meetings were in homes, on second Thursdays of the month, at noon. Dues were $1.00 a year. "A resident of the school district could visit (at that time) only twice a year; this rule was made in hopes that the guest would join and become an active member. "The first community project was a Halloween party at the school on Saturday, October 26, 1946. The first big money making project was the bazaar at the Masonic Hall on December 12th. The receipts before expenses were paid, were $346.39. This first event was not only a bazaar but a carnival and a vaudeville show. The newspaper clippings reveal that participants were: the Monroes, McGhees, Vernon Morris family, Dick Allen, Mary Lou Jamison, and Johnny Moffett. "At the end of the first year there were twenty members. There was community singing for the entertainment at the 1947 Bazaar at Alderbrook Inn. "A highlight for several years, and quite a social event was the yearly dinner dance at the Chicken Dinner Inn. "The group worked on many floats for the Forest Festival in Shelton, and won many prizes. Rummage sales were started, one was in 1952. There was work with the TB Association. In 1953 the members worked with the fire department. "A joint production by the Improvement Club and the Union Civic Club was a never to be forgotten event, the home talent show: "HOWLS AND HISSES OF !954", with Bernie Dorsey as the Director. To the capacity crowd for two nights this was great entertainment. The "Appaloosa Wranglers", "Liberace and His Brother", and the skit, "Life Can be Revoltin", were a few of the presentations with Karl O'Berry the man behind the colored lights and Otto Wojahn at the audio controls. "The years were full: the nautical theme festival float of 1958, and its first prize, the skatin~ narties for the youngsters. Square dances entered the scene with Otto Wojahn calling. 1964 saw another talent show. Then came game nights. Pollution became of interest in 1967. "There was a series of speakers. A style show at Bishopbrook made social headlines in 1967, held in cooperation with Mode O'Day in Shelton and the various MR. AND MRS. IVAN FAHRNKOPF will be honored on their Golden Wedding anniversary at a family reunion to be hosted by their daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Eldon Johnston, in their home on Saturday. The Fahrnkopfs were married Aug. 28, 1921 in Minot, N.D. They came to Washington in 1928 and have lived in Shelton since 1941. Ivan Fahrnkopf is retired from ITT Rayonier.

"Our Union Civic Club sponsored school parties, girl scouts, 4-H clubs. The list is endless, one of the last big events being the retirement party of Lucile and Otto Wojahn, accomplished with the cooperation of the Fire Department and the Improvement Club. It was a gala affair and a great tribute to two people who have worked so hard for this community. "All organizations must have a rudder, someone to guide, push, cajol, or do whatever else is needed to get and to keep people active. "In this club, the person at the helm is the president, These have been: Pauline Winne, Wanda Wyatt, Virginia Grout, Ingrid Brunstrom, Maria James, Myrne Lazzar, Lila Scheel, Alice Adams, Mrs. Thoran Ryan, Lucile Wojahn, Lucite Blake, Helen Timm, Kaye Sterling, Eleanor Buechel, Dorothy Mercier, Betty Shero, Gladys Sherman, Shirley Cowan, Betty Dean, Vera Bishop, Helen Pearce, and Alice Snuffin, our president for 1971. "There must always be a moment of sadness and may we give just a moment of our time in thought to our members who are no longer with us. Among them are Pauline Winne, our first president, Vivien Jones, Georgia Bacon, Mary Pfundt, Ingrid Brunstrom, Sophia Nelson, Oletha Stark, Helen Andersen, Grace Lyons, Estelle Vlhaites. Laura Gait, and Dianne Walker. "Notes of regret were received from charter members not able to attend.

"Crows' feet" develop more readily when the skin is dry. To ~revent the skin around the eyes from drying, apply a light-textured emollient eye cream every night. Squinting also encourages the development of lines around the eyes. For this reason, sunglasses should always be worn in bright sunlight. When sunbathing, cover your eyes with special eyepads. These Pads can also be used to ease tired eyes after driving, reading or sewing. CHOOSING A PERFUME Q. I would like to buy a )erfume for my wife. How do I go about choosing the right one for her? A. Perfumes, like people, have 'personalities." Some are stimulating, some soothing, some innocent, some gay and so on. The personality of the perfume should match the personality of the user. if your wife Is the "motherly" type, for example, she might like a sophisticated or a tender perfume.., but she would probably not care for a sportive or a vivacious fragrance. Perfumes are also "seasonal". In the winter, a heavy oil-based fragrance will give more satisfaction than a light fragrance.
