Ho Taylor (center) was among 14 area citizens recognized in April 2004 as Real Heroes by the Anacortes/San Juans Chapter of the American Red Cross. Taylor, who was instrumental in establishing a public hospital district in Anacortes many years ago, was honored in the “Community Volunteer” category. She has served the past 19 years as a volunteer at Island Hospital. See “Real Heroes” in the Activities section for more photos and information.
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.
