A well-deserved retirement

Doug Ramsay photo,

Mike and Carol Bauer were treated to a well attended retirement party on Thursday, March 31. Mike and his wife Carol took over the Bauer Funeral Chapel in 1978 upon his father Gerry’s retirement. The couple sold the business in 1997 but continued operating it for the new ownership. Bauer Funeral Chapel dates back to late 1880’s when C.H. Bakeman started the operation, he later sold the business to A.C. White, who in turn sold the business to the Bauer family in 1954. The business also included an ambulance service that both Mike and his father ran from 1958 to 1975.
Mike and Carol have contributed immensely to the community over the years through civic and service oriented projects. Mike served on the Snohomish Volunteer Fire Department for nearly 25 years and was a member of the Snohomish Lions for over 30 years. Upon retirement the couple plan to move east of the Cascades to the Yakima area in the near future.


Monroe High gets its first new ballfield

Monroe School Board President Katy Woods introduces those gathered to cut the ribbon to officially open Monroe High Schools first ball field on Monday, March 14 below stormclouds prior to the Fastpitch Softball team’s 2016 season opener against Seattle Prep (the Bearcats won 19-0). Numerous leaders attended.
Constructing the $1.39 million field was made possible by harvesting timber off school district-owned land, receiving generous grants from the county Tourism Promotion Area Advisory Board and the City of Monroe, then adding in local school reserve dollars. The next phase of the ballfield complex begins in May with building an all-weather surface baseball field and a utility field. This phase is funded by the bond approved by local voters in April 2015.
