More good things happening in Carnation

Carnation Have you noticed that Pete's Club is getting a facelift by Randy Ziegler and Peter Reiselman? Pete's Club has been a landmark in Tolt/Carnation since 1910. The original bar and back wall mirror are still in place and will be kept.
   There are not many of these left for people to enjoy. Years ago, some pretty interesting card games used to take place, the dance floor in the back was popular along with pool tables, and at the intermission from the public dances held at the I.O.O.F. Hall, the crowd would gather at Pete's Club for ice cream and sandwiches. The south section that has been removed used to be the garage for the Tolt stages and was later used for other purposes.
   Tolt Avenue is looking better. Thanks to Ray Walker, Sterling Landscaping, and the Sno Valley Senior Center, yards and planters have been redone and are absolutely gorgeous. Drive by and take a look. How fortunate we are to have such a professional and giving person in our community. Thanks, Ray. You can also enjoy Ray's talents in the front of Ixtapa.
   Tolt Historical Society will hold their last meeting May 14, 7:30 p.m. at the Sno-Valley Senior Center before their summer break. Program will be Julie Koller, King County Preservation, who will show slides of old Tolt/Carnation pictures. Everyone is welcome. The Museum is open upstairs at the center from 8:30 til 4:30 Monday through Friday.
