Sweet celebration

Published July 5, 2003 / by Steve Berentson

Anacortes residents were treated to an awesome Fourth of July fireworks display last night. Once again this year, Bubba Sudz Car Wash owner John Curtis is responsible for leading a community team dedicated to making the dramatic show a reality. Others playing major roles this year included Rotary clubs and the City of Anacortes. Thanks to all who contributed to making this show a reality!

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.
