The new year seems like a good time to confirm the Bellingham Bulletin mission statement:
• We strive to provide a complete, condensed source of information on local issues, people and events while encouraging town pride, unity and a positive sense of community among our residents. We also hope to provide the highest quality advertising at the lowest possible cost in order to help promote the economic well-being of businesses of all sizes and the community in general.
• Since we do not charge a subscription fee, our only operating revenue comes from our advertisers. By becoming a Bulletin advertiser, your company is helping to support this community service; in return, our advertisers receive low-cost 100% market saturation as well as a popular newspaper with high readership and retention in which to publish their press releases, photos, etc. (We do give priority to information that we received from businesses that advertise with us over those who do not simply as a way of saying "thanks" for helping to support the Bulletin in what we feel is a "win-win" situation.)
If you know of someone noteworthy who we should be writing about, or of an event that we should cover, please let us know by either emailing us at [email protected], or calling 508-883-3252. (Please note, however, that because we have limited staff, we cannot be everywhere all of the time so to be on the safe side, take a photo and jot down the facts of the event so that we can edit and publish it even if we couldn't make it there.)
So please take a few minutes to peruse the digital version of our January 2015 issue, if you haven't already read our print edition.
