It was March 2004 when Anacortes artist Jennifer Bowman stepped up to assist with the reveal of the Anacortes Waterfront Festival poster featuring her work. Also pictured here are refinery executive Tom Smith (left) and Ace Hardware owner Randy Burgess (then president of the Chamber of Commerce). Jennifer’s latest success in the wonderful world of posters is the 2020 Skagit Valley Tulip Festival art!(bouquet)
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.
