CR'$-2774 Our former neighbors, Don and Carol Laverty, have sent word of the arrival of baby boy Scott Clark on October 22 weighing in at 7 lb. 3 Oz. and 191/2 inches long. Carol and Don formerly lived near the Union River then moved to the home on Mission Lake while Carol taught in the North Mason elementary school and Don worked in PSNS. The new home address is 608 Cardinal, Waco, Texas 76710. Congratulations to the North Mason High girl's tennis team taking first place. Two of the team members, Gwen Pederson and Jean Fedenk, are on The Old Belfair Highway. Gwen played singles and finished out the season without a loss, and is now eligible to compete in the state tournament at a later date. Jean played on the doubles team with several top scores and a loss to stay in the winner's circle. The Union River Homemaker's busy calendar included the induction of two new members, Vivian Wanalista and Cheri Garrison; a visit to Scandia Gaard gift and craft shops; a coming trip to the Tacoma Mall this month to just "buzz around"; and a bake sale on November 20 at the Belfair Thriftway store. These ladies will also take part at the council meeting for the annual holiday show on November 18 at the Sheridan Park building in Bremerton. The program from 10 a.m. to 12 noon will have Linda Amos of King County speaking of her trip to Oslo, Norway for the .International Triennial Conference of the Associated Country Women of the World (homemakers on an international level). The craft displays by the various homemaker groups will be from noon until 2 p.m. Coffee and cookies will be served. It seems a bit late to extend sympathy to the family from the many friends of our neighbor, Mrs. Mary Kiezling. In this circle of friends, each of us has a special memory of times shared with Mary that will always be treasured. Mrs. Kathy Wilbur called to say that she is home after the surgery stint, is feeling much better, but will be on limited duty for some time. At this rate, the holidays will be a lot of fun for the Wilbur family having Kathy back. Congratulations are a bit late when a busy family is not available with the news. And so it goes in the welcome of Kathleen last October 11 joining the family of Mr. and Mrs. John Wanalista, brother Michael, and sisters Lee Ann and Linda. Kathleen weighed 5 lbs. 9 oz. and measured 18~A'' on her debut. Last weekend was a family excursion to Bellingham to visit our daughter Penny now pushing for a finale and a degree as a Spanish major at Western Washington. Penny and Linda Tompkins of Port Orchard share an apartment perched on the hill above the college campus. We started off in the early morning hours to catch the first ferry at Kingston to be in time to have breakfast with the girls and then drove to Vancouver, B.C. for a fun tour. On learning that Premier Kosygin of Russia was also going to be a visitor, our plans had an abrupt revisal to avoid the Vancouver Hotel headquarters and possible protest groups. The one-way streets, no left turns, and store locations had us either going by the police station or the Vancouver Hotel in spite of our best efforts to the contrary. Pedestrians on noting our "States" license plates were rather unfriendly at times. The circulatory system gets a good workout with the black ice signs posted on the freeway plus small cross roads that seem to have a driver ready and waiting to cut across the 70 MPH lane. Pertinent questions were asked as we crossed the border, but the return trip featured cars being searched just like the World War 11 spot checks in the navy yard. The 1971 OBH Sour Apple award is a first for Dick Rosenau for his true and unfailing weather forecast. When a change of weather (snow) is imminent, Dick's knee starts to hurt. Last Tuesday evening that knee was in high gear, and we had snow that same night. It was not much, but lasted on the lawn and woodpile for several days.

There was a large crowd of costumed high school friends bobbing for apples, dancing to the music and having a lot of fun. And, needless to say, they put away a "ton" of food ! Mrs. Cora Kelly and Mrs. Evalyn Stirling are active in the University of Washington Theater Seminar. Once a month the ladies join the group in discussion before attending a play at the Seattle Rep. This past week they saw Ring Around the Moon. The Young Adult Group of the Belfair Community Baptist Church spent last Saturday evening having a progressive dinner.

As of this writing he had called home to report that he hadn't gotten a moose, but was finding it awful cold[ NOT THE SAME ONE A white wooden boat, blue on the inside, about 14 feet long, turned up on North Shore October 18.

As soon as we get things sorted out a little and life gets back to normal, we hope to locate the elusive machine. It's not in the freezer, the refrigerator or the bread box, but those are the only places we've checked for sure. There are a lot of cardboard boxbs to go through and it could be under the pile still to be unloaded from the trunk of my car... I'm sure it will turn up SOMEWHERE. ! EVERYTHING WAS MOVED into new quarters at the former fire station by last week, but dispatcher Onie Sande (above) and deputies of the Mason County Sheriff's department still had a lot of work to do before one could say they were really settled in their new home.

She also mentioned that while most of the labor was volunteer and much of the material used to begin the community project was paid for by the Community Baptist Church through contributions and memorials, that the building was finished with money borrowed by the Church which will have to be paid off, so financial contributions by residents of the area will also be gladly accepted.
