Her Mom Rode in the Grand Floral Parade in 1934

My mother, Violet Mattson, rode in the Grand Floral Parade in 1934. At the time she was a senior from Grant high school.

She doesn't remember exactly how she was chosen, but the sponsor of the float she rode was Safeway stores.

Years later she went to work for Safeway as an accountant in Bellevue, Washington. She retired from Safeway in l979 and just celebrated her 91
birthday in February!
