Tribute to CCC workers

Published January 5, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

This statue at Bowman Bay on the Fidalgo side of Deception Park was dedicated in September 2004 to commemorate the work of young men in the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). These young men were responsible for much of the construction and infrastructure work at the state park.

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.
