In the April 2021 Print Edition

Mar 30, 2021 06:00AM ● By Pamela Johnson
April is here. Spring is in the air!  And although we still need to be vigilant in taking precautions (wearing masks, social distancing, and frequent hand-washing) life is beginning to resume some semblance of normality. Children are returning to classrooms full-time; however, parents do have the right to opt out and stick with remote learning.

It has been a difficult year on many levels, in particular socially and economically. Businesses (including this one) have taken some hard hits. You may have gotten into the habit of ordering everything online during the pandemic, but please remember that local businesses are invested in our community in ways that the ones you're ordering from probably are not--they hire locally, deliver better service, and they can bring in visitors from surrounding towns, just to name a few.  And because it's more difficult than ever to secure some of those ever-shrinking advertising dollars, please make an effort to support the businesses that advertise in the Bellingham Bulletin along with our other local businesses now that restrictions are loosened. (We really want to continue bringing you the feel-good hometown news you simply cannot get elsewhere!)  

Below are just a few highlights from the April issue.
