Berry sales sweeten Hospital Foundation

Published August 1, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

A stop at the Skagit Sun berry stand on 22nd and Commercial yields multiple rewards: your choice of delicious strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and/or raspberries, AND a resulting donation to the Island Hospital Foundation. This LaConner based family business was established in 1979 and has had a Commercial Avenue presence for more than 25 years! Pictured here peddling berries is Sarah.

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.
