Please Come Join This New Tumwater Group On Facebook
I’ve created a new group on Facebook for those of us who grew up in Tumwater, Washington. The name of it is You Know You’re From Tumwater, WA If… and it’s an open group. I was born in the 50′s when Tumwater was still a popular stop on the Old 99 Highway so I remember some of the old businesses and a few of the people around town.
My brother Dave and I grew up on Dennis Street where we seemed to have the run of the area for miles around once we both got bikes. We both went to Tumwater schools from K-12 so we also remember quite a few of the kids we went to school with too. I went to Michael T. Simmons grade school for the first grade (Mrs. Dalrymple) and then for all the other elementary years I went to Peter G. Schmidt grade school located on Old 99 and East Dennis Street. For junior high it was back to M. T. Simmons for two years and then Tumwater High School (within walking distance for me) for the next four years.
Anyway, if you remember anything about living in Tumwater how about joining the group and sharing your memories with us?[easyazon-block asin="B004V0SZT8" align="center"]
