Be sure to read the September issue of The Bellingham Bulletin.
Please set aside some time on Saturday, Sept. 13, between noon and 8 p.m., to swing by Chevy's Ice Cream on Pulaski Blvd/Rte. 126 (across from Grumpy's Restaurant). They have plans for a day of great fun--a magician, a clown, balloon animals, face painting, a live band, raffles--even a guest appearance by retired N.E. Patriots player Patrick Pass for photos and autographs. All of the proceeds from this event (ice cream sales, raffles, etc.) will be given to the Mancini family. And while it certainly won't make Dana's Mancini's lung cancer go away, it may help to ease his financial burden just a tiny bit. This is a great example of community: helping one another through tough times. We at the Bellingham Bulletin are proud to be able to help spread the word. And if you cannot make it to the fundraiser on Sept. 13, you may still contribute by visiting GiveForward.com and entering "Dana Mancini" in the search block to go to the donation page that has been set up for him.
Also in this issue, looking back, we featured some of the great programs hosted at the Bellingham Public Library as part of their annual summer reading program. Looking forward, we announced details of upcoming events planned for September, not just at the Library, but also at the Senior Center, in the Bellingham school system, and in and around town in general.
Read Ken Hamwey's piece about Bellingham business owner and philanthropist Tony Khoury's generous donation of $50,000 to Milford Regional Medical Center. As usual, Lynn Ulsh keeps us up to date on what's happening with the Board of Selectmen and the School Committee. Also, this month, we have reports from the State House from both of our elected officials, State Senator Richard T. Moore (D-Uxbridge) and State Representative Kevin J. Kuros (R-Uxbridge), on the budget signed by Governor Deval Patrick.
So take your time and browse--through the printed pages or here in the digital edition. The Bulletin is proud to capture the very essence of the town we serve, and help to define a lifestyle that is uniquely and proudly Bellingham.
