Popcorn volunteers

Published April 19, 2011 / by Steve Berentson

Volunteers pass through the doors of Anacortes public schools by the dozens each day. Among volunteers today at Island View Elementary School were Liz Jenkins (left) and Joanne Dyer, who offered free popcorn to schoolchildren during the lunch hour.

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.
