EVERETT, WASHINGTON (HeraldNet) - This could help fulfill a New Year’s resolution for those who want to become American citizens.

Learn about applying for citizenship by joining a class at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Mountlake Terrace library.

“We are so excited to report that since we began offering these classes in October, three people have become U.S. citizens,” says Rosy Brewer, managing librarian. “The students have expressed great appreciation for these classes and how much taking the classes helped them pass the test.”

Whether folks are just starting to apply for citizenship, already have an interview date or would just like to know more about the process, join the class at 23300 58th Ave. W.

For more information and registration, call 425-776-8722 or register at the library.

“We are the only library in Snohomish County offering these classes,” Brewer says.

Appropriate gifts were given to Sea Cadets by the Marcus Whitman Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution.

Members of Marcus Whitman Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, recently listened to Col. John Hosey, the battalion commander, and six cadets talked about their lives and future goals.

Sandy Hosey sang “I Believe” for the audience.

A certificate of appreciation and a basket with two historical books was given to the Hoseys.

Each cadet received a pamphlet about the flag code.

When the Blackman House Museum in Snohomish opened for holiday hours, they provided festive displays.

Sharon Swoboda with McDaniel’s Do-It Center in Snohomish offered a variety of decorative plants to spruce up with natural materials.

Snohomish Historical Society President Warner Blake thought the 2008 display with artificial greenery and electric lights didn’t do the trick in keeping with the early history of the home, he says.

They wanted the home to look as it might have at in the 1890s.

Featured was a 4-foot-tall Black Hills spruce, on loan from McDaniel’s garden shop, which was placed on a table in the front parlor.

“This was the custom practiced in Europe, so the story goes, and that in the 1600s, every member of the family had their own small tree on a table with their gifts placed around it,” Blake says.

There was a warm Christmas spirit at the dental office of Dr. Jason Chang in Everett.

Dental assistant Kim Holmes formulated a plan to skip the office gift exchange in order to adopt a family in need.

The Salvation Army provided contact information for children ages 11 and 12 ,who live with their grandmother after the death of their parents.

They had a great response from the staff and even the patients, Holmes says.
