Merchants light for holidays

Published November 30, 2017 / by Steve Berentson

With the Community Christmas Tree lighting Friday evening, Dec. 1, Anacortes merchants have started dressing up for the holidays. This is Thrifty Kitty and Buer’s Floral on Commercial Avenue Thursday night. Pencil in the 5:30 Christmas tree event at the Chamber of Commerce (9th and Commercial) and then enjoy the Friday Art Walk. See Anacortes.org for details.

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.
