Troop support

Published July 5, 2007 / by Steve Berentson

This “Support the Troops” parade entry drew enthusiastic response from a Fourth of July audience scattered along several blocks of Commercial Avenue in Anacortes Wednesday. Grand Marshal Hollie Brand has spearheaded a “packages to the troops” campaign for several years.

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.
