Chairman of the Board completes term

Kudos to Dennis Richards, who with the end of the year completes a 14-month term as Chairman of the Board, Anacortes Chamber of Commerce. This volunteer position calls for a major commitment of time and energy, from monthly board meetings to events such as membership luncheons, “After Hours” events and the annual Community Christmas tree lighting (pictured here: Dennis, right, poses with Mayor Laurie Gere and Town Crier Richard Riddell). Richards took on the responsibilities of this job on top of his job as Director of Community Relations at Island Hospital. Thank you, Dennis, for your service!

About Photographer 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.
