In the May 2019 Print Edition

Apr 29, 2019 06:00AM ● By Pamela Johnson
Hooray, Hooray, it's finally May! And we've got another issue of the Bellingham Bulletin that is packed with articles and news that you won't find anywhere else. We at the Bulletin strive to keep the focus on Bellingham and share stories about our residents, their children and grandchildren--all feel-good stuff to try and balance all of the negative that's out there.

Which is not to say that we neglect coverage of a more official nature, because we don't. We have coverage of school committee meetings by Amy Bartelloni; we have a Municipal Spotlight each month covering a topic suggested by the town administrator, and important news releases from town officials and schools. And now we have news of the events and activities surrounding the town's 350 anniversary. Something for everyone!

We encourage everyone to shop locally, especially with our advertisers  Small businesses contribute extensively to the well-being of a community, whether it's in the form of donations to important causes, or via employees who spend their money locally, too.

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--but isn't it 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.  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" in the Facebook widget on the right.)
