Festival countdown begins

The traditional unveiling of the poster starts the countdown to one of this community’s favorite public events: the Anacortes Waterfront Festival! The festival, hosted by the Anacortes Chamber of Commerce, is scheduled Saturday and Sunday, June 2 & 3 at Cap Sante Marina. Unveiling honors on Thursday evening at Trident Seafood went to Chamber Chairman Mary LaFleur of ALT Insurance (left) and Shirley Yap, GM of Shell Puget Sound Refinery. Photo courtesy of Shell.

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.
