Bellingham Bulletin

In the June 2019 Print Edition

May 31, 2019 06:00AM ● By Pamela Johnson
Happy Father's Day!  Welcome to the June issue of the Bellingham Bulletin. We've got a ton of interesting and informative articles of interest to all, from town meeting reports to library and senior center news, to activity in our schools.

Remember, when you find an item locally and you think you could probably save a few bucks by ordering it online or going to one of the big box stores, please keep in mind that it's the local businesses that support our schools, sports teams, and community causes, not the online giants or large chain stores.  Please shop locally, particularly with our Bellingham Bulletin advertisers, because not only do they support the local economy and community, they keep the Bulletin in business. Without their support, we could not produce, publish and mail the paper to you free of charge every month (and for many residents, the Bulletin is the only newspaper they get), nor could we maintain our website and post each issue online, as well as news updates throughout the month.

Highlighted below are some of the feature articles included in the current print edition for your information and enjoyment.
