Ready to Learn

This girl was among about 300 children served Saturday at the 2011 “Ready to Learn” Fair in Anacortes. She enjoyed making this paper heart at a crafts table set up to provide options for children as they moved through more than a dozen stations offering back to school supplies and services. The event, sponsored by the Salvation Army Anacortes Corps, was staffed by dozens of volunteers in cooperation with the Anacortes School District. Among services and supplies were haircuts, bicycle helmets, clothing, books, backpacks and vouchers to purchase shoes and lunch. Portable canteens were operated by the Salvation Army and Kiwanis Club. Numerous other service organizations, the Anacortes Fire Department and school district staff were on hand as well.

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.
