Mover-shakers

Seemingly necessary players in any traditional 4th of July celebration are volunteers, veterans and politicians. Anacortes Town Crier Judy Jewell visits with state Rep. Jeff Morris as KLKI radio station owner Bill Berry makes arrangements for a live broadcast of the patriotic program at Causland Memorial Park. Emcee Marty Iverson pauses for a moment with Anacortes Women of Today President Connie Biggness, leader of the volunteer team with primary responsibility for the parade. Mayor Dean Maxwell greets the photographer as state Sen. Harriet Spanel visits with locals. Among honored vets at the patriotic program were Wally Staflin (Air Force vet) and Jack Turner (Army), both members of American Legion Causland Post 13. Causland Memorial Park is dedicated to the memory of local residents who died in service to their country.

About Photographer Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
