In the November 2014 Issue...

Oct 31, 2014 06:00AM ● By Pamela Johnson
The crispness to the air and frost in the morning lets us know beyond any doubt that fall is here, just as does turning the clocks back an hour, and that winter is just around the corner.  November brings with it the usual planning for Thanksgiving and the beginning of holiday shopping--or at least thinking about holiday shopping, if not the actual venturing out to do so on the now infamous "Black Friday." Please be sure to do business with our advertisers as often as possible this holiday season.  They are, after all, the means by which we are able to produce the Bulletin each month and mail it to you free of charge.  Without advertisers, there is no Bellingham Bulletin.

We have another great issue for you to peruse either online or in print if you are a Bellingham resident or business owner, since, according to the Bellingham Post Office, the Bulletin will have been mailed out to every home and business on October 31.  (Hope you had a safe, fun Halloween, by the way.  Be sure to check out the article and photos on the annual Pumpkin Stroll.  Too late to include in the print edition, the photos and article are perfect for posting separately on the Bulletin website.)

So browse through the following articles, or scroll below and click on the newspaper icon to access the online PDF of our latest issue.  (Looking for older issues?  Click on "ARCHIVES" above...)  Have a wonderful November and a happy Thanksgiving!
