Page 16 MARYSVILLE — The Memorial Day ceremony at the Marysville cemetery has seen a growth in attendance in recent years, as elected officials and other dignitaries have taken time to pay their respects to America’s veterans. “We had between 350400 chairs out here last year, just because of the number of people who were standing,” said Beth Opel, family service supervisor at the Marysville Cemetery, shortly before the ceremony commenced at 11 a.m. on Monday, May 27. “This year, we brought out 100 more, but we still have people standing. Next year, we’ll see about getting a tent to cover the audience.” Although Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring had no speech of his own, he still joined state Rep. John McCoy of the 38th Legislative District, who offered his thanks to those in attendance. “This is a day to honor our fallen service members who made the ultimate sacrifice, but it’s also a day to remember those who are still with us, who have issues that need to be addressed,” said McCoy, who pledged that he would continue to work on behalf of veterans in Olympia. McCoy, a retired Air Force veteran from Tulalip, had attended similar services at Priest Point on the Reservation at 10 a.m. that same day, and noted that the numbers of older veterans are dwindling.

Walmart opens hiring Center in Marysville BY KIRK BOXLEITNER INDEX CLASSIFIED ADS 12-15 LEGAL NOTICES OPINION 210 4 SPORTS 8-9 WORSHIP 11 Vol. 121, No. 16 Kirk Boxleitner/Staff Photo Erica Darling, a member of the Marysville Walmart hiring center’s management team, performs a few of the routine administrative tasks required to set up a new Walmart store. MARYSVILLE — Its offices might seem a bit hidden away, but the management team of the new Marysville Walmart wants the community to know that their hiring center is open for business in Suite E at 1289 State Ave. in Marysville. Sonia Smith brings close to two decades of experience with Walmart, including her time as manager of the Everett Walmart, to her new job as manager of the Marysville Walmart, so she feels ready to supervise the hiring and training of approximately 300 new employees. “We have two interview rooms, which also have terminals to allow people to apply via computer,” said Smith, who will be working with a dozen other existing Walmart employees at the hiring center. “You can apply for a job at the Marysville Walmart online, at the hiring center or even at another Walmart, if you designate the Marysville store as where you’d like to work.” Smith noted that all the Marysville Walmart’s anticipated 300 new hires must be able to meet the needs of customer service, but pointed out that positions such as pharmacy technicians and vision center staff will obviously need to possess more specialized skills. Managerial experience from other stores is also a plus, although training will be provided to SEE HIRING, PAGE 2 774838 WS
