One man after the dance was over wondered why we didn't have a dance more often. The reason given was the small amount of people to get the food and man the kitchen, his suggestion was forget the food and just get that good music and have more dances. Another fellow remarked, 'I don't dance, but that music is good enough to make me think maybe I could!' Another group most of whom are summer property owners on the Libby Road in the Agate area, came as a direct result of having read about it in this column. They remarked we read your column each week and you made it sound like so much fun We just couldn't stay away. When I hear such comments it really makes a warm glow spread all over from foot to toe and it makes this job really seem worthwhile! The group of over a dozen, included Lee Carman (a property owner here) and his daughter, Paula and her husband, the Gordon Highfill family, Mabel Morrison and daughter, Mary and a guest of the group, Hal Thompson all of Seattle. Another visitor, Tina McLaughlan of Portland, Ore., was also a visitor. And Mr. and Mrs. Stenor Kurnsland who make their home in Port Orchard who also have a place at the little settlement known as Heggembo on Libby Road. One of the group remarked that there were almost as many over at the settlement that didn't come, but she said wait until we tell them what a good time we had and maybe they'll all come next year! Our Park Ranger, Jim McAuliffe, was also helpful in adding to the numbers at the hall hauling a couple of loads from the State Park boaters. The kitchen was well staffed and all ran smoothly through the very capable Committee Chairman, ftelen Olson. Very little food had to be taken back home and a good profit came from the food sales. Even the coffee pots went dry just a trifle too soon, there's usually a half a pot or so that gives the worm population under the hall a very early morning waker upper! Boy, if its the early bird that gets that worm they usually have to be awful early on Sunday of Labor Day. But this year the worms got to sleep m Ior a change - no coffee. Two weeks ago Chris Braget surprised her folks by dropping in for two or three days unexpectedly. She and a friend drove up from Calif., having just returned with a group that made a trip to Florida together for a few weeks. Leaving here, the travelers headed back to San Diego to seek employment following a delightul vacation. Chris remarked Florida was O.K. for a vacation but she would sure be glad to get back to southern California. Going back to Saturday night, momentarily, it was really great to have Bert and Grace Campbell (still our adopted Islanders) be able to leave their Spencer Lake Inn in good hands long enough to come over and enjoy the dance. It was really great to visit with them and see them take a much deserved break after having kept their nose to the grindstone for these past many, many long months. Due to a lack of time, we'll save a nice news item about the Campbells until this time next week. The Cruickshanks, Jack and Eileen were holding their breath last week waiting to see if their youngest daughter, high school student Susan, would make it back home in time for the opening day of school Wednesday. Susan's older sister, Kathy drove up from California and the two girls arrived here on the Island the day before Susan had to return to school. Susan had gone down to California following the close of school last Spring and the two sisters had shared an apartment together for the summer with Susan taking over the cooking duties while Kathy worked. Susan returned looking happy, tanned, and slim and trim. The Norman Tober family drove down Saturday evening in time for morn and dad, Lena and Norm to attend the dance, while the five youngsters spent the evening with Grandpa and Grandma, Arlo and Katherine Wingert. Norm, who was Boeing casuality, is very happy to now be among the employed. The Tober family returned Sunday to theier Vashon Island home. The Chuck Bridges family headed for North River Monday having spent Sunday enjoying a horse show. The event at Chuck's brother, Ted's home in North River was one that hadn't taken place for a good many years. All the relatives on Chuck's side of the family, literally aunts and uncles and cousins by the dozens who were able, gathered for a huge family reunion. Down on the south end of the Island at the Marshall Olson home, their small house was bursting at the seams with weekend guests. A niece, Lanore Lundquist and her daughter, came up from the Harbor. Also here were the Ed Moore family from Longivew. Mr. and Mrs. Moore along with one of their sons and a daughter accompanied by her friend, Rose Marie Matson arrived Saturday. Sunday the Moore's other son, 16-year-old John. who was just returning from a total of three months on a survival course on Mt. Saint Helens, arrived. The youth had been awarded a scholarship from the Weyerhaeuser Company for the long ordeal. Everyone certainly enjoyed hearing about his SHOES RESTYLED Cut Down On Shoo Dills...

One of the most memorable was when the leaders took away all their clothes and sleeping bags in 25 degree weather. With this year's crops of wild berries and fruit being much later than usual it really proved to be a real test for the group, called the Outward Bound. The group-also has a- female countergroup which was surviving elsewhere on the mountain. Helen remarked since it was John's first day back from the long ordeal she spent the whole day trying to fill him up and was never sure whether she ever accomplished that goal. To this writer, that would seem like a complete Mission Impossible, since boys of that age have a hollow leg every day, without going for three long months on practically nothing to eat. The Steig Gabrielsens returned last week after taking a two week boat trip. Most of their time was spent in the vicinity of Friday Harbor on San Juan Island ig and Rosario Harbor on Orcas Island. This time, however, they didn't have a cat story to repeat, with everything under control in that department. But they did say how terrible the yellow jacket situation was even at anchor way out on the water. There was just no getting away from the miserable little pests. Buddy Budd, brother of Johnny Budd, was on the Island visiting John and Alice over the Labor Day weekend. STARTS YOU BUYING A NEW HOME TOBINSKI @ 317 S. IST ST. PHONE 491-3232 ANYTIME!
