Bellingham Local Business Survey - Please Take a Minute to Fill Out - Thank You
The Town of Bellingham is conducting a survey to better understand how it can help local businesses impacted by the coronavirus.
GREAT News, SENIOR PARADE!! Great if the BBA could put up CONGRATS wishes on their signage to help them CELEBRATE!!
Dear Friends and Family,
I hope this email finds you and your loved ones safe, healthy, and well. This spring has turned out to be very different from what any of us could have imagined and continues to present challenges that range from the highly personal to those on a global scale. One consequence of the coronavirus and social distancing is that Jeff's Place had to cancel our annual spring fundraiser on which we rely heavily to fund free programs for children and their families grieving the loss of a parent or sibling. Yet now, more than ever, we are painfully aware of the increasing need to offer hope and healing to those in grief. And so true to our vision - No One Grieves Alone - our dedicated team has reimagined this event and created an online fundraiser in which 100% of the proceeds raised will go directly to Jeff's Place. If you would like to help, here are some things you can do:
1. Learn more about Jeff's Place - One of the greatest privileges of my life has been to serve on the Board of Directors at Jeff's Place. Check out these three short videos made specifically for this online event and hear directly from our Jeff's Place Founder<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFay6KXs8wk>, Clinical Director<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLFGWEN94fY>, and Lauren<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5Tsr5WKbss&feature=youtu.be&blm_aid=23710>, a sixteen-year-old who came to Jeff's Place after her father died by suicide.
2. Donate and Participate in our Online Auction - Take part in our silent online auction<https://cbo.io/bidapp/index.php> where you can access a variety of fun auction items and packages. Or, you can make a donation<https://cbo.io/d/donate.php?slug=jeffsplace> with a financial contribution that will go 100% directly to our program services.
3.

The SNL in Bellingham Event for May 15th and 16th has been POSTPONED!!
Hello BBA Members,
At the December BBA Breakfast hosted by the Friends of the Library we discussed opportunities for Bellingham businesses in assisting the Friends of the Library in supporting the library's programs. One of the outcomes of that discussion is the opportunity for sponsorship of the Museum & Attraction Passes that the Friends pay for and supply to the members of the community. Below is a list of the passes and their annual cost. We hope you will consider becoming a sponsor of one of these passes. If you have any questions, please let me know. You can reach me at this email or call my direct line, 508-657-2776.
Thank you for considering!

"Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains taken to bring it to light."
George Washingon, Letter to Charles M. Thurston, Sunday, August 10, 1794
I joined Musicians On Call 3 years ago and the experience has been incredible! I’ve made 45 visits to the Boston VA Hospital and played bedside for over 1,600 patients. I was honored to play for our veterans again this Christmas and made bedside visits to more than 50 patients.
I'm hosting a special fundraising event for Musicians On Call at CraftRoots Brewing on Sunday, February 9th from 5pm until 8pm. The night will be very special to me as it will be the CD release party for Agona Hardison’s “This Is The Year” which I helped write and produce.
Tickets are $25 and includes a copy of Agona’s CD, a glass of CraftRoots beer, and live music from Agona and me and other musical guests, plus food and raffles! All proceeds go to Musicians On Call to help us provide more services to our veterans at more locations around the country. Please join us for this amazing night of live music, great beer and friends!

If you can't make it, help me support Musicians On Call via the link below. Any size donation would be appreciated!
I hope you'll join us in delivering the healing power of music! Thanks in advance for your support!
All the best,
