Little firefighter

Published December 3, 2017 / by Steve Berentson

As usual, there were many emergency responders represented in the Lions Christmas Parade, including this little guy. Not sure what the wink was about, but I was glad to get his cooperation for a photo. Thanks to all emergency services folks, volunteer and paid staff. (Photo subjects are father and son, Robert Milton Atterberry III and Robert Milton Atterberry IV.) 

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.
