Fresh from the Salvation Army’s annual Thanksgiving food basket campaign, Anacortes Corps Officer Lt. Josh Boyd (center) is busy with a daily schedule that includes work with volunteers at six Red Kettle fund-raising stations. Pictured with Boyd Saturday at Safeway are Noon Kiwanis volunteers Byron Wingett and Phyllis Lamb. Working outside the post office was Jose Perez. See link at bottom of AnacortesToday homepage to make a Red Kettle contribution via the Internet.
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.
