Shell in Mount Vernon

Published November 28, 2010 / by Steve Berentson

A couple of dozen Shell Puget Sound Refinery employees and family members contributed to the success of the Sunday evening Christmas Parade in downtown Mount Vernon. In addition to several lighted emergency response vehicles, Shell’s parade entry included volunteers who handed out colorful bead necklaces. Also on hand were the popular inflated “firefighters.” In the coming week, Shell volunteers will participate in Burlington and Anacortes Christmas events as well.

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.
