Celebration

Published October 16, 2010 / by Steve Berentson

A week-long series of Homecoming celebrations continued Friday night with a 14-10 football victory as the Anacortes Seahawks defeated the Burlington-Edison Tigers. Pictured here earlier in the day are members of the Class of 2011 “aboard” their float during the traditional downtown parade. The Homecoming dance will be held tonight at the Port of Anacortes Transit Shed Event Center. See more parade photos in Activities section.

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.
