The gift boxes, an annual project of the Auxiliary, contained homemade cookies, candies, canned snacks, peanuts, gum, books, stationery, Christmas cards for the serviceman to use, Cracker Jacks, and shoestring potatoes. Among those who helped wrap the boxes were (left to right) Virginia Kovack, Nellie DeMiero, Johanna Thompson, Ethel Mullen and Jeannine Stice. ya By LENNIA CATES --CR 5-2245 The marriage recently of Lynn Dee Tveten and Richard Allen Paterson in the St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church in Tacoma was a beautiful occasion.

Around 250 guests attended the wedding and the reception which followed at the Lakewood Terrace, with dining and dancing until the wee hours. At one point of the evening festivities were interrupted when Rack's Commanding Officer called to tell him his honeymoon plans would have to be changed. They had reservations for a week at Harrison Hot Springs, followed by residence in Honolulu where Rick was stationed with the Army Corps of Engineers. As it turned out,the couple honeymooned in Tacoma and three days later the bridegroom left his bride to return to the Islands where he was discharged two months early by making the sacrifice. The handsome couple are now at home in Bellingham where they will continue their studies at Western Washington State College where both are on the President's List. Well, the elk hunters, Howard Ranniger, son Kevin, son-in-law Bob and my Jesse came back with one deer - shot by Bob. The trip started out quite badly when Howard tripped over the concrete buffer in front of the lumberyard and fell flat on his face. Fortunately the doctor was in at the clinic and he was patched up, but the first day found him still dazed. Fortunately too, his glasses weren't broken which would have cancelled the trip out. The deer dressed out at over 150 pounds, so was a nice one - the liver was delish! Well, Mike's performance at the Symphony was tops - he had four curtain calls from the sell-out crowd, and the local radio station made a tape which it played at different times the following Sunday for those who were unable to attend. Bravo Mike!! Candy Sills, Jesse Tharpe and my Jesse all observed birthdays last week - Many Happy Returns! ! Hope everyone will have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

Mary Wing (left) and Erma Roessel, are seen by Lars aemottsnea pictures they created from sand, sea water and beach charcoal during attendance at the art workshop, part of the Haystack '71 program, which was held at Cannon Beach, Ore. last summer. Some of their artwork for the program is on display this month at the Belfair Post Office. Haystack '71 program put on by Portland State University. Instructor was Fred Kline. The course was for advanced work in art and went on all summer, with other classes devoted to music, drama and short story writing. The Belfairites said there were students from all over the country enrolled in the several courses. It was so much fun creating pictures in this new way that both Mrs. Wing and Mrs. Roessel have continued to work with natural materials to create artistic pictures since their return to Belfair from the workshop. Coast Guard signups Two Coast Guard Reserve programs are now re-open for first-time enlistments. One program allows an initial five-month active duty period This month's display of art work at the Belfair Post Office is the first exhibit for artist Mary Wing and the second for Erma Roessel, whose watercolors were displayed on the same wall in December of 1968. The two women took a course together in watercolor painting at Olympic College several years ago and then learned more about art from two extension courses taught at night school at the North Mason High School a couple of years ago. The artwork on display this month was created when the couple joined a workshop at Cannon Beach, Ore. for two weeks last summer and learned a new method of creating paintings, through use of sand, sea water, beach charcoal and beach atmosphere. Once the basic design is formed with the natural materials, the artists finish the pictures in their homes by adding acrylic paints and medium. The workshop at which they learned the technique was entitled "Painting with the Natural Environment" and was part of the D & G TREE SERVICE TOPPED, TRIMMED OR REMOVED FULLY INSURED Wes Griffey CR 5-2117 Lou Dobbs TR 6-4783 :-. .... followed by assignment to a .
