Salvation Army officers close 43-year careers

Salvation Army Anacortes Corps officers Carol and Jerold Forney this week received a retirement gift from members of their volunteer Advisory Board. The Forneys, who have spent the past five years at the helm of the Anacortes Corps, will retire to Missouri at the end of the month. Their gift was a photograph of Fidalgo Bay, Cap Sante and Mt. Baker, a view they enjoyed from the second floor of the “R” Avenue Salvation Army facility. Among many accomplishments during the “Forney administration” was the expansion of social services/food bank into a neighboring condo space. “We shall remember fondly these five years in the Northwest, and so many people we have met,” said Major Jerold. “I am sure that we will keep involved with the Salvation Army.”

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.
