Anacortes visit

Published August 21, 2005 / by Steve Berentson

We were honored a few days ago with a visit by Mike and Cindy Dickinson, former officers at the Salvation Army Anacortes Corps. Their children are Rebecca, Joshua and David. It’s been about five years since the Dickinson’s career with the Salvation Army called them away from Anacortes. Mike and Cindy were corps officers during the capital campaign that led to the Army’s new home on “R” Avenue. We hope to see them again soon, possibly for the Anacortes Corps Centennial Celebration in January.

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.
