Seems like only yesterday! Join Island Hospital in celebration of its 50th anniversary for a free community health fair for the entire family on Saturday, May 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the hospital campus just west of Commercial and 25th Street. The community event will feature free screenings, health exhibits, healthy snacks, raffle prizes and much more! If you have questions, call 299-1309. (These photos, courtesy of Island Hospital, were taken in the early Sixties.)
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.
