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!

Dear Friends- 

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,

Good Morning BBA,  another Happy Snow Day!!

The following is a message from Beth, Denis and Jen...

They are looking for businesses to have something set up in the 300th Park (old police station area) for the parade participants and viewers to enjoy at the end of the parade this Saturday, December 7th.

They can provide tables if that is needed. It would be a great way to highlight local businesses at the start of the holiday season. Maybe pizza places could have hot slices of pizza to offer, things along that line. Warm drinks, food samples and/or some giveaways, they are very open to suggestions.

They expect the parade to be at the park no later than 6:30, so to plan accordingly and have things set up by 6pm at the latest.

Please contact BETH at bsmith@bellinghamma.org or 508-244-1763 if you have any questions.

We are nearing the end of our 300th celebration so it would be wonderful if we could spotlight our great businesses again!!

Thank you in advance, stay safe and warm in the SNOW!!
