Haugen honored

State Senator Mary Margaret Haugen (D-Camano) was honored Friday night by a crowd gathered to kick off the Anacortes Waterfront Festival. Presenting a “saved” poster was Mayor Dean Maxwell, who noted Haugen’s key role in preserving the Anacortes-Sidney, B.C. international ferry from state budget cuts. Save the Ferry kudos also went to the Chamber of Commerce, the Economic Development Association of Skagit County (EDASC) and a committee led by Duane Clark. The annual kickoff dinner, held at the Port of Anacortes warehouse, is hosted by EDASC, represented by Director Don Wick and board officers. Among people and businesses honored by the Port of Anacortes were Dakota Creek Industries (DCI) and architect Marc Estvold; numerous festival sponsors including principal sponsor Shell Puget Sound Refinery.

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.
