Planes over ‘Night Out’

Published August 7, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

Members of the Whatcom-based BlackJack Squadron offered an aerial tribute to Anacortes first responders with a Tuesday evening flyover. “National Night Out” was designed to connect community with first responders including fire/emergency medical professionals and law enforcement officers. The event, which was held at Storvik Park, featured informational booths, demonstrations, live music and more. A vigil to fallen officers was scheduled as well. Among volunteers were members of the Anacortes Rotary Club.

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.
