It’s official

Published August 25, 2005 / by Steve Berentson

Mayor Dean Maxwell and the Chamber of Commerce “made it official” Thursday evening at a Grand Re-opening ribbon-cutting event hosted by owners of the Majestic Inn and Spa. About 200 people gathered for the “Business After Hours” event held in the courtyard of the downtown business. Also on the agenda for the evening event was recognition of sponsors for the 2005 Anacortes Jazz Festival, scheduled Sept. 16-18 at Curtis Wharf on the Guemes Channel.

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.
