_1 i tl I It ! - .. , ..... By LOUISE EWART- 426-4925 PARENTS OF North Mason PeeWee boys braved the wind, rain and, sometimes, snow to sell Christmas trees in the Belfair parking lot to earn money for the newly organized athletic program. Here Kathleen Landram (left) shows a tree to a potential customer, Lu Fleury. Christmas is truly a family time and trains, planes and buses are bringing absent family members home. Bret Person told me his best Christmas present was the visit of his brother Ross from California who will spend the Holidays at the family home in Island View. Washington State University students, Les Okonek, Joel Zehe and Art Nicklaus arrived home this week. The Pettitt home was the scene of the 4-H Christmas party. The Soda-pops and Sew-and so's met together to enjoy games and refreshments and to sing Christmas songs. Debbie ttardie and Dana Jackson were the prize winners in the games and won Christmas candy as their prize. From the attractively decorated table the senior leaders served punch, candy and cookies, Mrs. Pettitt's special banana bread, and a candy cane was given to each member. The children really enjoyed the party and I am certain I am By Leo & Margaret Livingston -- CR 5-6421 000000000000 By the time this is published it will be time to say "MERRY CHRISTMAS" and we do. For weeks the gala sights and lights of Christmas have been appearing on our road (and elsewhere) paling into insignificance even the ghastly mercury vapor lights. We have even had a pre-white Christmas, for many a hopeful sign of more to come and for some, enough. Last week-end, cold and drizzly, we noted that not a single camper or trailer was week-ending at Belfair State Park. However, as we passed the park entrance we noticed a lone hiker with full pack entering the park. it was later confirmed by Mrs. Ben Hemstreet that they did have an overnight back packer. It was probably not much worse than some summer nights we have spent in the Olympics. An unhappy item for any time: A Christmas card from Roy Schram in Vancouver, Wash., informed us of the death of his wife, Merle, October 1. The Schrams lived in the Port of Allyn rental house in 1968-69. and were good and friendly neighbors. We are all much saddened by the news. Dorothy (Mrs. Franz)Miller, only sister of Irene Middleton of the North Shore, died of a heart For fun on the back trails you can't beat a The 1972's are here! 60cc Mini Enduro up to 650 Also BSA, Rickman Metisse & Trail-breakers, 2 wh. dr.

Mike Shirk is reported to be home for the holidays from basic training in the Air Force in Texas. The North Shore Birthday Club met December 7 at Sandy McKaig's house to celebrate three December birthdays - her own and those of Eliza Stites and daughter-in-law Alice Stites. The triple birthday cake was made and decorated by Lenna Fortman. Two happy birthdays occur in the Alan Sande family this month. Ron was 17 on the 12th and Alan, Jr., will be 19 on the 24. The North Shore Sewing Club (a separate organization from the Sewing Bee) met oil the 14th at Lillian Hankinson's and engaged in miscellaneous stitchery. Dr. Joseph Ralkowski, Bremerton dentist and amateur airman, has moved his family from the North Shore to a new home in East Bremerton near his dental clinic. Their new and larger house accommodates the growing needs of the three Ralkowski daughters, Kathy, Debbie and Mary. Greeting Drawn by Penny Byerly 5th Grade SANDE'S BOATS speaking for the parents when I say "Thank You," Mr. and Mrs. Lon Pettitt, for all you do for and with and the time you give to our youngsters. Shelton Junior High School presented a most enjoyable program Thursday evening with a play from the Drama Department and several songs from the Choir group. The Mason County Park and Recreation Board had their regular meeting _on Monday evening at the Courthouse in Shelton. (I missed the meeting because of a dead battery) Evalyn Stifling togk minutes for me and sent me the latest information. The Mason County Recreation Association has twenty-five acres on John's Prairie and plans have been drawn for a concession stand, football and baseball fields. They plan'to build a sports facility that could be of use to people of all ages. The Park and Recreation Board has gone on record with an offer of help in any way they can. A multi-purpose building is presently under construction and will contain the concession stand, restrooms, showers, lockers and meeting rooms for local groups. When the entire complex is completed there will also be tennis courts, soccer and softball fields, bicycle trails, horseshoe pits and a picnic area. We are fortunate indeed to have such a group of concerned citizens working so hard for all the children of this area. The Olympic Clam Company of Allyn was the featured story of a Nantions Trade magazine and the cover was a picture of Dan and Lai'ry in diving suits and a story inside with additional pictures Dan took underwater of Larry harvesting geoducks. The children and teachers of the Grapeview school worked very hard on the program for the Christmas party held at the school and the good mothers as Santa's helpers have been shopping and wrapping gifts (this is one of the news items Lou has warned me about. I am writing this on Thursday and the party will be held next week.) This is really the most important party of the year in Grapeview and I certainly want to mention the work and planning that is going on right now. Mr. and Mrs. Gary Bamnick and family have moved into their new home on the Grapeview road. The new home was opened to guests when the ladies of the luncheon club met for a Christmas buffet. Not many towns have the distinction of having every public building in town bright with xmas lights but we do with every building beautifully decorated.

And she added, "Patrons are finding this out, as more and more people throughout the region make use of the district's central request service." According to Mrs. Morrison, patron requests for books and reference services received in the central service department in Lacey were up 35 per cent over those received this time la.st year. In November 1971, these requests totaled 4089. November 1970 requests were 2688. Of the 4089 requests, 3615 were for books; 314 were for answers to reference questions; and 160 were for magazine articles, phonograph records and other items. b "The central request service was devised to give patrons ready access to books throughout the region," she explained. "This method also keeps more books in use because they are not left on the shelf of one library when they are needed elsewhere. People are discovering they receive their books must/faster now, because as soon as our central services staff locates a book anywhere in the region it is mailed directly to the patron."

(The painters were even heard to be singing carols as they worked.) North Mason ,High ;chool News By RONA HARPER Greeting Drawn by Richard Berehot 5th Grade This year's Christmas concert was held last Thursday in the gym. It was presented in the afternoon so that all of the Jr. and Sr. High students could see it and kind of a dress rehersal for all the performers who had never gone through the whole program together before. Everything went well considering it was the first time through although some of the performers were VERY nervous. It was presented again in the evening for the public to attend. No admission was charged so that it could be the school's Christmas present to the community. Last Thursday was also the debate at South Kitsap at which our school participated. Most of the members of the debate team went to represent our school. All Seniors planning on applying for financial aid from any of the four year schools in the state should get a financial aid information request form from Mr. Hawkins as soon as possible. This is not the application for financial aid but the request that is sent to the school you are planning on attending for the application for the financial aid form from their school. It is now past mid-quarter. To many that fact has no special significance but to others it means poor work slips are out and all of the other horrible things that go with getting a poor work slip. A National School Assembly was scheduled for last Wednesday but it was not held because the performer who was to be there never showed up. Angela Golette was to present a program of different types of songs but her mother died and she flew to where she was, thereby cancelling all of the programs that she had planned. The Lettermen sponsored the Donkey Basketball game with one of the highlights being the game between the GAA and the Lettermen. Of course the girls did the best, aren't girls always better? The Talent Club is planning a talent show for some time in January. Anyone who would like to join is welcome. The club needs all the talent it can get. The GAA Tolo was held last Saturday. Everyone enjoyed themselves who went (25 couples). The chaperones we, re Mr. and Mrs. Ulberg, Mr. and Mrs. Thurston, Mr. and Mrs. Schillinger, and Miss Smith The GAA would like to thank everyone who worked on the tolo and gave special thanks to the chaperones. The school is getting into the holiday spirit with some of the students painting on the windows. Many different pictures are going up this year, you know, Santa Claus, Christmas trees, holly wreaths, things like that. Of special not'ice is the angel on the office window, Frances ('ornell (with the help of some of the other people in the office) painted it along with a snowman and some other figures.
