Anacortes Town Crier Richard Riddell
Big news in the Town Crier category: On October 1 and 2, criers from across the U.S. and Canada will visit Anacortes for the 2011 North American Town Crier Championship. Pictured here is Anacortes Town Crier Richard Riddell. Follow the YouTube link to see Riddell do his thing at the recent Anacortes Work Boat Races and Pirate Faire.
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.
