Anacortes Port Partner Awards

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Port of Anacortes recently honored Port Partner Awards recipients at the Waterfront Festival Kick-off Dinner in the Port’s Transit Shed Event Center.

Created in 2008, the Partner Awards is given to those who teamed up with the port to “promote economic growth, environmental cleanup, and strategic planning.”

This year featured two Customer Service Partner recipients Chinook Enterprises, which provides grounds maintenance services for the port, and Wes Holden, DOWL, for his help in the Anacortes Airport Improvements Project.

The port’s award for Strategic Partner went to POGO Zone, which helped the port deliver technology to Port tenants and high-speed internet services to the Anacortes Airport.

The award for Economic Development Partner was presented to Anthony’s Cabana recognizing the 2016 opening in the Cap Sante Marina waterfront.
