A community celebration of U.S. military veterans will be hosted once again by the Port of Anacortes, this year on Monday, November 11. This public event, which starts at 11 a.m., will feature live music (Skagit Swing), light refreshments and a number of speakers. Serving as emcee will be U.S. Navy veteran and Port Executive Director Dan Worra. The event takes place at the Port Transit Shed Event Center at 100 Commercial Avenue (extreme north end of the main street).

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.
