This annual event is a show of friendship and unity bet- ween the American Legion and the Service personnel in Persian Gulf Helen Reichert called early this week to say she had heard from her boys in the Persian Gulf and change addresses.

Members said this event "is a major undertaking and will require the combined efforts of each mem- ber for their ideas and assistance in preparing food, decorations, souvenirs, entertainment and housing." Due to the time consuming preparation of this event the Auxiliary voted to hold an aRernate Gavel Passing meeting at 8:00 p.ln. on the third Wednesday of each mon- th through July.

Valentine's talent fest Saturday night A Valentine's Talent Fest is set for Saturday night, February 16, at the Brewster Grange, according to Dr. Judith Nielsen of the Seventh-day Adventist Church social committee. There will be a vegeburger supper starting a 6:30, with the program set for8:00. Kids, teens, seniors, in-betweens will entertain the audience with Crosscountry air trip Phyllis Long took her first air- plane ride accompanied by her daughter Janette of Gig Harbor. They flew non-stop from Seattle to Newark, New Jersey to visit with Phyllis' double cousin Margaret Scott of Callfon, New Jersey. Margaret was born in Wapato, Washington and left at age 10 for North Carolina. The weather was perfect the first week and they enjoyed the sights in New Jersey and going to Liberty Island. Janette climbed to the crown on the Statue of Liberty. When she came down she said, "My knees feel like jelio." They drove through Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia visiting famous places, seeing the Amish, and loving the Shenandoah Valley. They stayed at Staunton, Virginia, home of the Staffer Brothers where they went through the Luray Caverns, visited Monticello, home of Thomas Jeffer- son, and the Natural Bridge Wax museum. They also went on a mile hike to Lace Waterfalls and visited places George Washington's men had camped. They drove on to Charlotte, North Carolina where they got in a hurricane "watch." It really rained and such hard winds. They stayed several days with Dottle and Robert Blackburn while visiting their cousin Wesley in Monroe in the nur- sing home. They all enjoyed the shopping in Charlotte. They drove back to New Jersey and rested a few days. Janette and Phyllis visited with Richard Swan- son of Greenbrook and they all drove to Ocean Grove, to see the Atlantic Ocean and visit the old historic town - where there are no alcoholic beverages sold or served. Until 1963 you couldn't even drive a car on Sunday in their town. The old homes were majestic and touching one another; no yards at all. They all had to take Janette shop- ping at Macys' before coming home. The last Sunday there, they had three tornadoes hit down in New Jersey, and one in Philadelphia. The flight home was great! They took pictures from 30,000 feet high and could see familiar places in Washington like Washburn Island, Bridgeport Dam, Pateros, the Methow and all turned out good in the pictures. They were amazed at how clear everything was. Phyllis really enjoyed the flight and Janette loves flying and is saving for her next trip to Florida. Everyone wanted us to send them Washington apples. But there's no place like home! music, skits, readings and surprises. The public Is invited, assures committee chairman Rose Holder.

Sixty uncover talents Some secret--and some known-- talents were shared at Monday evening's meeting of Sixty in the fellowship room of the Seventh-day Adventist Church after a group of about 20 suppered together and sang birthday greetings to Ed Love, a jolly 80. Retired Pastor Frank Wyman in- troduced the program and his wife Barbara displayed the February project--ready for postage--three large packages bound for Burma missions with Sabbath School and Vacation Bible School supplies, sim- ple office needs and good used clothing. The implications of true GOLD-- Giving Orphans Life and Dignity-- and a response from International Childrens' Care for the group's January help, was reported by Dr. Joan Roberts. Oil paintings and the inspiring fac- tors that spurred their creation were shown by quiet artist Christine Col- field. Retired pastor Bruce Roberts strummed his mandolin; there were poems, original and otherwise, by Barbara Wyman, Lou Venden, Maizie Williams; readings, in- cluding that of the white stuffed owl in the barbershop by Frankie Love, Charlene Funk, Ira Huey and Louise Roberton. Frank showed his stamp collection and shared letters from around the world, and Ed got in comments via Ann Landers on the specific advantages of being 80. The next meeting is set for March 11 for games and fellowship, and the invitation to share the fan is open to any sixty or over according to Senior Center current executive couples, the p! ,--'noct"e Wymans, Roberts and Don and Eighteen players composed five Nellie Evans. tables of pinochle at the Senior Cen- r :. ter in Brewster Friday evening.
