In the August 2017 print edition

Jul 28, 2017 06:00AM ● By Pamela Johnson
August has arrived, too early it seems. (Can we possibly be talking about first day of school already?)  With June being a wash weather-wise, summer arrived too late and will leave too soon--for me, anyway--but others may long for the cooler weather and changing leaves. Time marches on, seasons change, whether we want them to or not.

In any event, the August issue of the Bellingham Bulletin is chock full of original articles from our talented staff of writers, including lots of coverage of the summer reading program, events at the senior center and more. Below are just some of the highlights from this issue. (NOTE: If you want to skip to the PDF file and read the entire print edition, simply scroll down below the highlights, and click in the center of the box containing the newspaper icon.)

I would be remiss if I failed to remind our readers to please make every effort to support local businesses, in particular those who advertise in the Bulletin; as a non-subscription paper, those are the only operating funds we receive. (Even if you don’t end up buying anything, please let them know you saw their ad in the Bellingham Bulletin.) These local businesses contribute to the well-being of the community in ways too numerous to mention. Also, if you haven’t done so already, please “like” our Facebook page for updates (you can do that right here in the Facebook widget on the right).  Thanks--enjoy the remaining summer!
