Erica honored as Grand Marshal

Published July 6, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

A stellar choice was made this year as citizen leader Erica Pickett was honored as Grand Marshal of the 2018 Anacortes 4th of July Parade. Before retiring from public service earlier this year, Pickett contributed more than 34 years in leadership positions ranging from Forest Advisory Board to Planning Commission and City Council. Thank you, Erica, for your service!

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.
