Dedicated family

The Mooney family was well represented today at Memorial Day services held at Grand View Cemetery in Anacortes. Pictured here are U.S. Marine Corps veterans Pat and Betty Mooney, with son Patrick, who served as bugler at the event. The service was hosted by American Legion Post #13, Walter Garland presiding. In the foreground are Annabelle Fox (right) and Vietnam veteran Larry Collings. More photos pending.

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.
