You Know You're From Haines if You Remember.......

Recently someone started a group on Facebook that has garnered quite a following.  It’s been a fun trip down memory lane.  Here are some of my favorites:

·         Feather and Fin restaurant
·         Moose Horn restaurant
·         Doody’s store
·         Wileys restaurant
·         All the “put the fear of God into kids” adults:  Retha Young, Florence Lammers, Ethel Powel, Bill Battrick
·         Roller skating at the old barracks
·         Swimming at 11 mile
·         When the bakery was a row of apartments
·         The big outdoor stairwell into “Schnable’s apartments” with the Post Office below
·         The “Rack & Que” (someone even still had a Tshirt!)
·         Mrs. Berry’s pink everything!
·         Powell’s Store
·         Hakkinen’s Store
·         The Corner store (owned by McDowells)
·         Curfew siren going off every night.....10 pm on weekdays, 12 on weekends
·         The police station up by the legion hall
·         Customs down at 1 mile with a sign saying if you missed us, check in tomorrow morning
·         Riding the cable car at 26 mile
·         Sourdough Pizza (taught me to love of sprouts atop my pizza)
·         The old yellow truck on the playground
·         The rope swing up by Menakers
