Tasty outreach

Published June 30, 2010 / by Steve Berentson

This is part of the cooking crew from the Anacortes Elks Club, which Wednesday afternoon hosted a barbecue at Washington Park for several dozen people bused in from the Veterans Hospital in Seattle. A veterans representative extended his thanks after the lunceheon for a relationship of support that dates back more than 15 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.
