Union sets up Tesoro Incident Family Fund
>United Steelworkers Local 12-591 has set up a “Tesoro Incident Family Fund.” This fund has been established to help affected families in the wake of the April 2 incident in which five died and two suffered life threatening burns. This fund is not part of the Tesoro Corporation, and all donations will go directly to the families of those that have passed away, and also to the families of the survivors. Contributions can be sent to: Tesoro Federal Credit Union PO Box 248, Anacortes, WA 98221-0248 or USW Local 12-591, PO Box 483, Anacortes, WA 98221-0483
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.
