Lacey history this week – 1977

August 9th, 2016 by Ken

Filing for positions on the Lacey City Council closed this week and 12 candidates filed for various seats.   Only Karen Fraser escaped without any opposition.

The North Thurston School Board reversed its decision from a week previous, and decided to place an $8 million dollar bond issue on the Primary ballot.   Board members had determined not to use the Primary election for its bond issue, but this week changed its mind citing the need.

City officials held a grand-opening ceremony on the corner of Sleater Kinney and Pacific Avenue celebrating the renovation of Pacific Avenue.   And, the Fifth Annual Lacey Music Arts and Dance Festival got underway at St. Martin’s College.
