Happy Thanksgiving!

Published November 27, 2003 / by Steve Berentson

This volunteer crew and dozens of others gave of themselves on Thanksgiving Day, leaving their homes to help prepare a meal for those less fortunate. This photo was taken in the kitchen at the Anacortes Eagles Hall, just two hours before the noon banquet was scheduled to begin. Volunteers are (l. to r.) Kaitlin Daoust, Lauren Hansen, cook Charlie Lindsay (a 10-year banquet veteran), Christina Hansen and Barbara Hansen. See more photos under “Eagles Thanksgiving” in Activities section.

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.
