Bake Sale, Hospital Workers, more


10-2 or while supplies last

2521 Humbolt, Sunnyland Urban Farm

Our neighbors at the Ukrainian Evangelical Church of Bellingham, corner of E. North and Cornwall, suffered a devastating loss yesterday morning when an arsonist broke into their house of worship and caused a tremendous amount of damage to a facility they’ve been lovingly remodeling with their own sweat equity. When I spoke to them this afternoon and told them the neighborhood wanted to help, at first they were hesitant (they’re a very proud people), but when they told me they couldn’t have their Pyrizhky and bake sale tomorrow as planned, I knew there was a way we could all help. The baked goods were already prepared and will now be for sale here at Sunnyland Urban Farm, all proceeds to benefit the rebuilding of the UECB church. I’m also going to set up a Go Fund Me in their name. Please help show our neighbors what Sunnyland is really made of…buy all this delicious food, and if you have a few extra bucks, throw that in, too! Please call if you have questions or want to help (360) 296-3124.


Keep those cards and letters coming!

Cards and letters are having a really big effect. Please keep writing! I still have some lovely cards if you’d like to pick up some to write on. What we write is getting photographed and digitized, and added to the internal newsletter. There are also displays in places around the hospital and at some of the clinics as well.

Mail to:

The Workers At St Joseph Hospital / Peacehealth

2901 Squalicum Pkwy, Bellingham, WA 98225

Let’s be sure we don’t add to the workers’ burden. Social distancing, masking, vaccinating, going to your doctor, WALK IN CLINIC or URGENT CARE instead of the ER unless what you have is truly life threatening….

We have now found a way to distribute gift cards if you want to contribute. The musicians are putting out a “Reverse Tip Jar” when they play during shift changes. The best cards are for local cafes, coffee shops & restaurants. You can drop them through the mail slot at our house – 2518 Cherry Street. (We can still use more musicians too!)


Can you please put a note in your newsletter, inviting people to come pick my Italian plums?  Call me at 360-927-6544 to make sure nobody has just beat you to it. Thanks, ~ Linda Twitchell


We found AirPods in their case in our yard of the 2700 block of Williams yesterday morning 9/10. Contact Pete Sutherland @ 360-220-0630.


Was at Mount Baker for a hike on Ptarmigan Trail Aug. 25. Discovered my phone missing when I returned to my car. Group of hikers coming out said they found it where I had stopped for lunch about 2.2. mi. in and left it on the rock there. But it was gone when we went back to get it. Assume another hiker picked it up. Would like to get it back. Left word at Ranger Station but if anyone here has it or know who does, would appreciate your getting in touch. or 360-303-1020 ~ Cheryl Crooks
