MOBILE GREENHOUSE

A small green greenhouse just blew past my house. It was put in our trailer on the corner of Williams and Washington streets. Come and claim it anytime. I’ll be home. ~ Rosalie Carlson

It was blowing down Williams St. A neighbor let me put it in her trailer on the corner of Washington and Williams. Can’t guarantee it will stay there long! ~ Darrah Blanton

YOUTH PHILANTHROPY PROJECTS The Whatcom Community Foundation runs a Youth Philanthropy Project, bringing high schools students from all of Whatcom County together to participate in a three-month program focused on building leadership skills, expanding non-profit development skills, fostering interest in participation in non-profits in the future, building teamwork and growing student confidence.  Students in our neighborhood have participated and speak highly of the program.  Applications due December 1st.  Program begins in February 2021. https://www.whatcomcf.org/community-impact/programs-partnerships/youth-philanthropy-project/ ~ Laura Todd, Williams Street 360.224.0116 or lauratoddcoaching@gmail.com.

WORLD HELLO DAY

World Hello Day is the brainchild of two brothers back in 1973 and, although their web site is sparse, it certainly does get discussed online. You can read the Wikipedia article yourself, but I appreciate the basic idea. Under the current restrictions of COVID-19, of course we can’t greet strangers while walking down the street, but perhaps we all can recognize the day with a friendly greeting on our own chosen social media channels. More than ever, the need is great for simple, unadorned, day to day friendliness. ~ Greg Hope, Victor Street

THE HELLEBORE RAG

By Ben Bonham, played on my beloved Twangoleum, which got caught in the pandemic down near Hood River, Oregon. The instrument is having a great time, and so is Ben. He sent me this today. Isn’t that a crazy instrument? And doesn’t Ben play it wonderfully?
