Happy Valentine's Day and school vacation!
Welcome to the February 2019 issue of the Bellingham Bulletin. As always, we try to deliver a balanced blend of feature articles, sports reporting and press releases from local organizations and businesses, along with the advertising that, as a non-subscription publication, is so crucial to our continued success. Without sufficient advertisers, we’d either have to start charging a subscription fee (and lose our 100% saturation appeal), or stop mailing the paper directly to every home and business, and resort solely to distribution locations where you could pick up the Bulletin--so much more convenient to just carry it from your mailbox into your house with the rest of your mail.
Of course, the best way to help us to retain advertisers is to patronize these businesses as often as possible; even if you don't end up buying anything, please let them know that you saw their ad in the Bellingham Bulletin. Also, you could ask businesses that do not already advertise with us why you haven't seen their ad in the paper--every referral helps.
Please like our Facebook page to communicate with fellow residents in real time when it's inconvenient to wait for our next print edition. (Click on "Like Bellingham Bulletin" in the Facebook plug-in on the right.)
Below are a few highlights from the current issue. (To view the PDF file of the Feb. issue in its entirety, scroll down and click on the center of the newspaper.)
