Ahhh, April. Daffodils and crocuses blooming, longer days, milder weather, though by any measure this has not been a difficult winter (except for that one extreme cold snap).  Welcome, Spring!

At 40 pages, this particular issue of the Bulletin has even more than usual to offer in the way of interesting articles about people and events connected to Bellingham. Human interest stories, sports, upcoming events--it's all here for your reading enjoyment.

As always, we remind you to let our advertisers know that you noticed their ad in the Bellingham Bulletin. Even better, do business with them as often as possible!  There are so many media now among which companies must divide their ad dollars, we have to remind them that tried-and-true print advertising still works.

If you'd like to advertise in the Bulletin, please contact Cyndy Rogers, 508-529-4437 or [email protected], or the Bulletin office, 508-883-3252 or [email protected].  Also, we are open to suggestions, tips, comments and, yes, even criticisms--we're always striving to improve. You can reach us at the Bulletin email address shown in this paragraph.
