Yes! Attending Reunion

Bob and I got married June 21,1969 in Petersburg.We've lived here most of our married life except a few years living out at Coffman Cove in the early 70's.I was a stay home Mom until my children were in school . Then I worked part-time in the retail business until 1994 when our son graduated from high school and went off to college. Then I started working full time in 1994 at the drugstore as the OTC buyer and head retail clerk.Happily I'm still there and enjoying my job.

School Story:

I moved to Petersburg when I was 16 from Poulsbo,Washington.I enjoyed going to PHS as it was so similar to North Kitsap. Vikings were the mascot of both schools.I liked going to PHS because of the kids and teachers and our town .I have many fun memories,too many to put down.Petersburg was and is a perfect place to live and raise our kids and grandkids.

Favorite Petersburg story:

Some of my many memories of Petersburg are from when I worked at Mick's Cafe. It was our favorite hangout after school and during the Summer. Most of us have memories from there.My other best time was being Teen Club President,and putting on the dances every weekend at the old Moose club or Sons of Norway hall and putting on the movies at the auditorium,since we didn't have a theatre then.Then working towards raising money thru the teen center to have a swimming pool.


Bobby and I travel every summer to see our kids and grandkids.Many trips to Montana and Juneau to name a few.
