Who remembers playing at the playground at the Sumas Grade School? Recess was such a special time to enjoy the sunshine and to hang out with our classmates. Of course, I remember enjoying visiting our favorite playground monitor, Mrs. Straka.

This is an intriguing article announcing the opening of a Cigar Factory in Sumas, WA. It would be interesting to find out if this business venture was successful. Soon afterward, the depression struck our country and impacted many business. Whether or not the cigar factory survived is not known.
