Senior Events 11/22

BE A READING BUDDY: Public schools across the country have faced system-wide budget cuts. Increased classroom sizes and reductions in aide staff challenge our teachers. The Grays Harbor Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) wants to help! We are recruiting citizens age 55 plus to be Reading Buddies. Many studies show that if a child is not reading at grade level by 3rd grade, it greatly impacts their ability to graduate high school on time. By helping students learn to read you will promote reading appreciation and success. For about one hour per week, YOU can make a difference. Call Jenny today to learn more about the program.

Looking Back — Wandering Turkey

The caption for this Thanksgiving 1959 photo in The Daily World read: “After a rather unusual ‘vacation trip’ around the countryside, Cosmopolis Lion Don Estes’ 25-pound turkey finally came home to roost Monday night. But Estes decided not to keep the wandering bird. He is shown donating it to Marian Gillespie for the Salvation Army’s annual Thanksgiving dinner.” If you have any information on this photo or others from this feature, visit www.jonesphotocollection.com and submit it via the websites feedback form.

Looking Back — The Sport Shop

The Sport Shop, owned by Frank C. and J. R. Ladley, was a one-stop shop for “sporting goods, cigars, tobaccos, fancy wines & Cafe in connection.” With the small exception of a Puyallup Fair ad, every other placard in the window is selling tobacco. Once located at 408 8th Street in Hoquiam across from what is now the Bank of the Pacific, it eventually fell to Urban Renewal in the 1970s. But in August 1949 it was still “The Sportsman’s Home.” If you have any information on this photo or others from this feature, visit www.jonesphotocollection.com and submit it via the websites feedback form.
