Bank premiere

Adding to the bustle of the First Friday Art Walk Friday night was the “premiere” event at the new Bank of the Pacific in downtown Anacortes. Branch Manager Mike Trafton, corporate dignitaries and staff rolled out the red carpet for an event that drew hundreds through the doors of the one-time movie theater on Commercial Avenue. Included in the crowd were two sweet ladies who once worked as usherettes at the cinema. In keeping with the “opening night” theme, cutouts of Hollywood stars including the Three Stooges (black tie, no less!) were positioned throughout the building. Also available were traditional movie theater items ranging from popcorn to boxed candy. The Bank of the Pacific had a “soft opening” last Tuesday, and is now open for business under a regular schedule. Amenities include a small conference room, and there is a beautiful wall display of historic photographs from the Wallie V. Funk Collection.

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.
