Starting with their first annual Easter Egg Hunt Marcia 29, 1970. Hundreds of children came to search for the many eggs which had been hidden. Easter Baskets were given to the children with the most eggs and the grand prize was a bicycle. The Jaycees have also been active in the Junior Athletic Association. Several of their members managed, coached, or umpired Little League Football and Baseball games. The Jaycees also sp,.onsored the Junior Athletic Dance, raising over $1000 for the association. Over the past year, the Jaycees have donated untold hours, and many dollars, to Clubs, Inc., whose main purpose is to maintain one of the finest Community Hall in the state. Community projects the Jaycees have been active in this ar are Community Park, dney Foundation, Aqua Fest, and Blood Bank. Through the Jaycees concern and efforts the Lake Stevens Blood Bank is-- coming out of the red. Another first for the Jaycees this year was the Spook House, which was enjoyed by the youth and a huge success for the Jaycess. During Thanksgiving weekend they held their annual Junior Miss Pageant, naming Dora Bean as the Lake Stevens Junior Miss for 1970-71. During the Christmas season they donated baskets for needy families. The' Jaycees also provided a Santa Claus giving candy to the youth of the community. To climax the holiday season they held their annualcommunity New Year's Eve dance. In Jaycee activities they hosted a Regional Presidents' meeting, had two local members serve as regional officers. Attended all region and state meetings. Internally taking a very active part in SPOKE, Spark-plug, Speak-up, and many other Jaycee leadership projects. At their last Board of Directors' meeting the Jaycees had Bob Larson, Business Manager for the Lake Stevens School District, give a presentation on the upcoming school levy. The board showed an honest concern and will take the school levy to the general membership. This is just one more example of how they are working hard to make Lake Stevens a better place in which to live. Currently the Lake Stevens Jaycees are rated as one of the better Jaycee Chapters in the State. With over 50 members, they are an active, outstanding Jaycee chapter. Yes, the Jaycees have had a busy year and will climax Jaycee Week with their annual Bosses' Nijght. This has also been an enjoyable year and one that has served the Jaycee purpose of making their community a better place to live. A picture worth 1000 words as the Jaycees support the Junior Athletic Association. The helping hands of the concerned young men of the community joined together to form the Jaycees. An organization dedicted to the betterment of your commu- nity and interest in its welfare through service. The Jay- cees not only give these young men a chance to help others, but at the same time develop leadership abilities through community service. We are proud of these young men and their contributions, for they are truly our leaders of tomorrow.

The substantial amount of snow melted (was washed away!) virtually overnight. It was replaced by the relative warmth of 50 degree Saturday afternoon. The river was up, the steelhead fishing was down. And then came the wind late Saturday evening, causing, if; my count is correct, our 3rd power outage in less than a month. A big fir tree was prooted in the yard at Green Gables as evidence of the force of the wind. The warming trend didn't do much for the skiing. Doug DuLac and Ross Henson skiied in the rain Saturday. Earlier in the week, Jane and Dalton DuLac report the skiing was excellent on new powder snow. And speaking of skiing, Bobbie and Becky Tharp have just gotten their first skis and will soon be among the novices on the slopes at Mt. Pilchuck. One might think once he had traversed the seven miles of road to the ski lodge he was past the likelihood of an accident, but Dalton DuLac's car was involved in a four (!) car accident in the lodge parking lot which did minor damage to his - yes- brand new car. Three people were injured, none from this area, and in case you heard an ambulance Saturday it was en route to this accident. Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Henson drove from Bellingham Sunday for dinner with the Duane Hensons. Weekend guests of the Dalton DuLacs were Mr. and (Continued from Page 1) Directors heard a report from Supt. Hoban that the five people employed under the Employee Supplement Program of the federal government are all working out well. The 16-week program is funded by the federal government, administered by the local and state employment offices' and implemented at the local school level. Granite Falls School District has employed under this program one person in each of the following positions: custodial, playground supervisor and library aid; secondary school aid and office helper, elementary school aid ;and bus mechanic helper. In his report to the board, Supt. Hoban advised that the hot water improvement was so good that lowering the temperature of it for comfortable use must now be made; a bus is being provided for students for ski school at Mt. Pilchuck; bids for the surplus school bus available for sale through the General Services Administration will be opened Jan. 26 and bid forms are available at his office; the adult education program offered through Everett Community College has only one class filled, the GED class; and that teacher evaluation reviews will be made available to the directors at their Feb. 24 meeting. Mrs. Alsid of Enumclaw and their three children. JoAnn and Bill Gordius, their daughter Pam and new baby Angle visited with the Alex Cooks and the Bob Tharps on Saturday. Bill went skiing with Ricky Cook while the rest of the family visited. Norm and Lois Blythe visited Susie ViVier in Everett on Saturday. Susie sends greetings to everyone and says if the weather keeps you at home, drop her, a card at Merricrest Home. Susan Blythe and Heather DuLac are among the girls scouts from the Granite Falls troup who are taking roller skating lessons every Saturday for six weeks at the Skate Inn in Marysville. The girls are having alot of fun and at the same time are earning their achievement badges in skating. Art Stormo, valley resident for several years and Robe Fire District Commissioner, will be moving to Everett in about a week. As I understand it, though, Art will be visiting frequently when the weather gets a little warmer. Happy birthday to Pam Phillips who celebrated January 17.
