Cooking for the cause

Published June 6, 2017 / by Steve Berentson

Among several service clubs active in Anacortes is the Lions Club, which is prominent at many public gatherings as they offer food and drink from their specially equipped trailer. This group of volunteers was photographed on Saturday morning as they prepped for the first day of the Anacortes Waterfront Festival. Net proceeds from sales go into a fund that feeds a variety of service programs including scholarships for local grads. Go Lions!

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.
