Salvation Army honors Bill Berry: 2005
It was the summer of 2005 when Bill and Lynn Berry, owners of KLKI AM Radio, hosted a Chamber of Commerce “after hours” function. Berry was pleasantly surprised by Anacortes Salvation Army Corps officer Michael Paugh, who took the opportunity to present him with the non-profit organization’s “Media Award” for contributions to the community. Bill died in 2015.
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.
