Yancey visits

Christian author Philip Yancey autographs one of his books, “Gift of Pain,” for Fiona Auhuighan of Sedro-Woolley following a Saturday night celebration of 100 years of local service by the Salvation Army. Approximately 700 people gathered for the event, at which Yancey was featured speaker. Among those representing the Salvation Army were local officers Mike and Beth Paugh, as well as Divisional Commander Lt. Col. Harold Brodin of Seattle. Musicians included the Salvation Army Seattle Temple Band and the David Harsh Band. A post-event reception was co-hosted by Johnny Picasso’s, Pizza Factory, Gere-a-Deli, Costco and Anacortes Chocolate Factory. The Salvation Army Anacortes Corps was established in 1906. The local Corps now provides a food bank and a wide variety of social services. Call 293-6682 for information.

About Photographer Steve Berentson

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.
