Out with a bang

Published July 5, 2006 / by Steve Berentson

Once again, the people of Anacortes watched the Fourth of July go out with a bang as John Curtis and troops presided over a colorful display launched from the shoreline of Fidalgo Bay. If you’re so inclined, you can still send a financial contribution to the fireworks show. Make check payable to the Anacortes Parks Foundation, PO Box 410, Anacortes, WA 98221.

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.
