More good things in Carnation

good things in Carnation How many of you have noticed the new flagpole proudly flying a new flag at the corner of the Sno-Valley Center? Elbert Gould, a member of the Tolt/Carnation community most of his life who passed away last year, has been honored by his family with the presentation of the flagpole.
   City Hall has received a much-needed facelift. The old Fire Hall has been added to the City Hall, and new siding, windows, doors, and a paint job are a real plus to Main Street. Stop by and see the beautiful job done by Randy Ziegler and Peter Reiselman on the interior, also.
   Entwistle Street is kind of a headache at the present time, but hang in there and give the contractor a little more time, and we will enjoy a full-sized street and also sidewalks. Some of the homes along the street have smaller front yards because of the project; one lost its front porch, and some lost their shade trees.
   A building explosion is also taking place on Entwistle Street, Stephens Avenue, and the Moore subdivision. More nice people will be moving to our city shortly.
   The Tolt Historical Society would also like to invite all of you to join their group. Meetings are the second Wednesday of each month, September through May, meeting at the Sno-Valley Senior Center at 7:30 p.m. The program for the March 12 meeting will be a slide show of the Wellington Disaster (Train Accident). Mark your calendars, bring a friend or neighbor, and come join one of the friendliest groups in town. Also, our mini-museum is open upstairs whenever the Senior Center is open.
