Volunteers bless visitors

Published July 17, 2017 / by Steve Berentson

It took a few minutes to steal Jo and Ernie away from their guests for this photo. The two are volunteers at the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Information Center (VIC) on C0mmercial Avenue. Guests to the VIC are blessed with the experience and counsel of dozens of volunteers who staff the center, patiently answering questions and handing out helpful material ranging from maps to informational brochures and magazines. Go VIC volunteers!

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.
