Floral fundraiser

Published May 10, 2008 / by Steve Berentson

Dozens of roses donated by Christianson’s Nursery were among featured items at the annual garden fundraiser held at the Courtyard at the Majestic Inn and Spa. This is the fifth year a group of volunteers has contributed its time and talent to raise funds for downtown beautification efforts. On Saturday there were also volunteers including members of the Anacortes High School wrestling team putting up hanging baskets up and down Commercial Avenue.

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.
