Hints of jazz

Published August 19, 2005 / by Steve Berentson

A glimpse into the courtyard of the Majestic Inn and Spa shows clear evidence of big events just around the corner. First, there will be a Grand Opening ribbon-cutting at the historic downtown hotel in conjunction with the Chamber of Commerce “After Hours” event next Thursday, August 25. Next, as is evident from the artwork on the wall behind the Majestic gazebo, this community is gearing up for the 2nd Annual Anacortes Jazz Festival, September 16-18. Call the Chamber at 293-7911 or visit www.anacortes.org for details.

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.
