Community contributes to trestle rebuild: 2010
It was Spring 2010 when the community responded with more than $300,000 in contributions for the post-fire rebuild of the trestle on the Tommy Thompson Trail. A fire destroyed 300 feet of the half-mile-long trestle in 2009. Donations were made through the Anacortes Parks Foundation.
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.
