So it begins…

Published August 30, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

Anacortes High School was alive Thursday morning as students and staff arrived for the first of two “start up” events this week. The 2018-19 school year begins next Thursday, September 6. The school’s first football game takes place Friday, September 31 at 6 p.m. against Roosevelt: “The Wallie Bowl,” so named with a nod to the late Wallie Funk, AHS alum, newspaper publisher and ardent sports fan.

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.
