Valley AIDS Quilt, new park at Tolt; Wearin' of the green once again for Leo Kelley | Out of the Past

The following stories made the pages of the Snoqualmie Valley Record 25 and 50 years ago:

Thursday, March 23, 1989

• Mother and daughter Margaret and Stephanie McDonald of Carnation have made a panel for the National AIDS Quilt for their late ex-husband and father Bob McDonald, who died of AIDS. He died the previous September, but the women have had a hard time grieving openly, because most people aren’t comfortable talking about AIDS.

• His Irish comes out best on that most Irish of days: Leo Kelley of Snoqualmie was in all green again, dazzling those he met, of all ages, on St. Paddy’s Day.

Thursday, March 26, 1964

• Another county park for the Snoqualmie Valley was assured when the King County Commission authorized $75,000 for the purchase of 83 acres on the north side of the junction of the Snoqualmie and Tolt Rivers. The half mile of shoreline will be used for recreation.

• Your Easter suit will see you through the entire spring and into summer, if it’s like the check number in this week’s Glazier’s clothing store ad.
