O By JEANNINE PETERSON -- 426-3815 Donna Harris spent a week in Shelton Hospital undergoing tests for a possible heart condition. This is the second attack she has had this year. Donna's sister-in-law came and stayed with the children while she was in the hospital. Neighbors Mr. and Mrs. Tom Aarhus have been like real parents to Donna, they have been taking such good care of Donna and the children since she came home. They have even postponed their trip until Donna improves. Get well soon, Donna. The Richard Wood family on Benson Lake, son of Mr. and Mrs. Earl Wood, are facing a long winter of discomfort if housing for Mom, Dad and their 5 little boys isn't found soon. There are 9, including grandma and grandpa, sharing the Wood's small home on Benson Lake now, one bedroom and 1 bath are all. Richard is a retired serviceman and he just returned from Vietnam and is trying to find a low income rental in the Grapeview School District. If you hear of any prospects for them, please call the above number. The ladies of the MBC who have been working every Monday making Christmas decorations for the Bazaar would appreciate your contributions of old jewelry, yardage, etc., or ideas. Come Mondays at 1 0 a.m. and bring any or all of the above. Mark Moore saw a Neuro-surgeon in Seattle after being hit in the face with a tow chain and discovered the bone in one side of his face was competely shattered. He spent four hours in surgery; plastic surgery was used to repair the bone structure too. He is back in school now, and feeling better, his mother reports. Halloween was ushered in by the children and adults at Mason Lake. The children attended a Halloween party at the Grapeview Fire Hall sponsored by the Mothers Club and the adults celebrated at the MBC. Not too many were in costumes this year, not nearly as much fun to watch as last year. Mr. and Mrs. Berliner won 1 st prize. He had bib overhalls on and a big red heart patch on his rear! Mrs. Berliner said she was sending him to the Virgin Islands for re-cycling!!! They really were great. Sven Gunnarson, as a judge, was very diplomatic as he called 2nd and 3rd place a tie and awarded a case each of refreshments to the Don Welches and Pete Petersons. (You'd never have recognized the Welchs.) It was a lot of fun, as all the parties are with this swell bunch of Lakers. The spaghetti dinner at midnight was exceptionally good, thanks to all the hard-working gals. Pete spent all day last Wednesday trying to get Mark on a plane East. They spent from 9 a.m.-I 1:30 at McChord Air Force Base trying for a Military flight, but he was bumped by a Col. Then on to Sea Tac where he waited for a Military Standby flight but at 1 p.m. gave up and decided to wait for the 12:30 a.m. Thursday flight by 747, which they promised would be a cinch. Pete turned over the waiting to Mark's girl friend and returned home. All this in the worst rain and wind of the week. Thursday evening he called home from R I. He had reached there at l'- DENNIS REAL ESTATE ] Specializing in / Waterfront and View / / Belfair Across From l CR 5-2254 Balfair State Park/ / three o'clock in the afternoon, after stops in Chicago and Cleveland. It didn't really dawn on me he was so far from home already until about the middle of the conversation, then I realized, he was over 3,000 miles away. I'm thankful he wasn't enroute to Vietnam though. Russ Denny received his orders to report for his basic training in Texas with the Air Force, He will leave November 12th. Good luck, Russ. Remember the MBC night at the Club house this Saturday. Bring your friends and relatives. The prospective owners of Mendenhall's Marina are still not ready to make an official statement. Final papers are not signed and it takes a couple of weeks to get the beer license confirmed. I think everyone around here has been told unofficially, though. Well, that's the way scoops are scooped 1 guess! Better Luck next time. Alice Jean Mendenhall stopped by last Saturday to say the papers are all in order and the Marina is definitely sold. She is about through moving out of the Marina and their cabin. We are really going to miss the Mendenhall family as operators of the Marina as well as friends. They gave so much of themselves to the community. Bill is attending the University in Leningrad and his letters are most interesting. He shares an apartment with four Russian boys and one American boy. He says the Russian people are wonderful, so friendly and warm. All mail is censored and any packages are confiscated that come from the United States though even some postcards of Seattle that Alice Jean sent, were never delivered. Bill will return in the Spring and possibly the Mendenhalls wilt meet him in New York. What a family of boys to be proud of. Certainly an example to all. Jack and Donna Harris moved last weekend to their new home at Paradise Estates. Glad to have them as neighbors. Get well soon Donna so you can teach me to play tennis next spring.
