Baldwins named Grand Marshals for this Saturday's Duvall Days

Longtime residents Jeane and Lloyd Baldwin have been named Duvall Days Grand Marshals.
   The Baldwins, who were honored as Duvall Citizens of the Year in January, have lived in the Duvall area since 1961.
   Jeane has been active in city government and Lloyd helped organize Little League baseball in the Valley. Starting out living at the Pickering place in 1961, they moved into Duvall proper in 1974 where they reared their five children.
   Jeane is currently serving on the City Council, and this is her fourth year as treasurer for the Eastlake District of Garden Clubs. She served two-and-a-half terms on the City Council before she became mayor in 1985, serving until 1989. Her present council committees include Public Health and Safety and Utilities.
   Lloyd was instrumental in starting Little League baseball in the Duvall/Carnation area. He spent 14 years as a coach and as a member of the Sno-Valley Little League Board. He also served on the Boy Scout Board in the 1970s and Jeane was a Cub Scout mother.
   In 1974 they purchased motorcycles, joined a group called the Retreads, toured the country from Canada to Mexico and camped under the stars.
   They still have their motorcycles, including Jeane's 1994 red Suzuki that has "Grandma's Toy" inscribed on the back fender.
   "We don't ride as much now, but I still ride occasionally," said Jeane.
   Jeane retired from DeJong's dairy in 1994 where she ran the accounting computer. Lloyd retired from James River box plant in Redmond in 1991 where he was a die maker.
