Orange wave of pool supporters

Published July 8, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

Friends of the Anacortes Pool & Fitness Center were out in force at the 4th of July parade, clearly identified by their orange hardhats. The hats are representative of the organization’s campaign to construct new facilities at a cost of $28.4 million. See “In the News” for more photos of parade and a recent fundraising event.

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.
