In the July 2021 Print Edition

Jun 28, 2021 06:00AM ● By Pamela Johnson
July is here and, for the second year, there will be no festivities for July 4th because of the pandemic--not because it is still in full swing, but because it was when the planning and contracting would have had to be done. Unfortunately, we could not find any other towns nearby who are having fireworks or festivals either. Whatever you end up doing (if anything), please enjoy yourselves safely.  

NOTE: the town is planning a 3-day event for Aug. 19, 20 and 21, which will include a carnival, attractions for children and fireworks on the 21st. More info will follow in the August issue of the Bellingham Bulletin.

Reminder: We need advertisers in order to keep producing, mailing and posting the Bellingham Bulletin at no charge to you. Other hometown papers charge a subscription, but the Bulletin never has, and it's our goal that we never will, but we need your assistance--Please support our advertisers!  

We work hard to keep the advertisers we have, but we always need to pick up new ones as well, so if you know any business owners, please mention the Bulletin to them. It is literally the most inexpensive way to get your printed message into every home and business in Bellingham--pennies per household is not an exaggeration. And inserts mailed out in the Bulletin are a great deal less expensive than the cost of mailing them first class. Please contact the Bulletin office at 508-883-3252 or [email protected] OR Ad Sales Manager Cyndy Rogers at 508-259-4631 or [email protected] for more information about advertising.

Below are some highlights from the July issue, and below those you'll find the digital edition. (Click on the broken box to the bottom right of the newspaper icon; use your "Esc" key to exit.)
