Cascade residents start playground

A community playground in Cascade Valley was started Sunday evening. Neighbors gathered on land donated by Mr. and Mrs. George Calvert and helped burn and cleared the property.

Development and equipment of the playground is being sponsored by the Cascade Valley Garden Club, with the assistance of their husbands, members of the Cascade Valley Boosters.

Dennis note: OK: This is the beginning of what park? Is it Cascade Park? Way back in Little League days, my dad, along with a bunch of other fathers, carved a baseball diamond out of the dirt right where Valley Road makes the curve at the bottom of the hill into Cascade Valley. There is not a hint of the field today and the curve has been enlarged, which covered some of the field.

New managers at bus depot

New managers at the Greyhound Post House in Moses Lake are Mr. and Mrs. Frank Zissos. They replaced Lewis Walls May 26. Mr. and Mrs. Zissos moved here from Pocatello, Idaho, where they owned and operated a café and service station until this spring. Hours for the post house will continue to be from 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Dennis note: OK folks, here is a bit of history for ya. The bus depot is called a post house? Anyone with knowledge about this terminology, please send me the info: dclay@atnet.net or 762-5158.
