Christmas Parade Pt. 2

Published December 3, 2017 / by Steve Berentson

Saturday’s Lions Christmas Parade was great, as always. Participants ranged from little singers and firefighters to representatives of groups ranging from Kiwanis to Sister Cities. Andeavor’s parade entry included a 1955 ambulance. Chamber members collected on a horse-drawn carriage and volunteer firefighters waved from their trucks and emergency response vehicles. Lots of fun for all! Thanks, Lions, for hosting this community celebration! (Note: First photo features father and son, Robert Milton Atterberry III and Robert Milton Atterberry IV.)

About 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.
