World Water Day Beach Cleanup @ Squalicum Beach Park
Mar 22 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
World Water Day Beach Cleanup @ Squalicum Beach Park

In celebration of World Water Day, RE Sources for Sustainable Communities, Port of Bellingham, and Surfrider Foundation are hosting a trash and marine debris cleanup south of Squalicum Beach in Bellingham!

Plastic pollution is a global problem for water quality and wildlife, and has even been found in drinking water and table salt worldwide. According to the UN, people use 5 trillion single-use plastic bags worldwide each year.

This year, World Water Day’s theme is “Leaving No One Behind,” in recognition of the fact that many people are excluded from access to clean water, especially marginalized groups worldwide – women, children, refugees, indigenous peoples, people with disabilities, and more.

Cleanup equipment, snacks, coffee and tea will be provided. Please wear shoes suitable for walking on uneven surfaces. Volunteers can park at the Squalicum Beach Park Parking on Seaview Ave. Parking is limited, so carpooling is encouraged.

Benefit for the Bellingham Food Bank @ Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship
Apr 13 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Benefit for the Bellingham Food Bank @ Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship

On Saturday, April 13th, the Social & Environmental Justice Committee of the Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship will sponsor songwriter Linda Allen, daughters Jen and Kristin Allen-Zito, and a host of special musical friends in a concert in celebration of Linda’s arriving at the half century mark as a working musician. In addition to an evening of wonderful music, every dime after expenses will benefit the Bellingham Food Bank.

The concert will be held at the Bellingham Unitarian Church, 1207 Ellsworth in Bellingham. Tickets are a suggested donation of $15.00 and are available at the door. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Please consider bringing non-perishable food items for the Food Bank. Dessert will be served after the concert.

Linda has been a working musician beginning in 1969, writing and singing powerful songs of hope and history, spirituality and death, love and whimsy in a style the writer Studs Terkel once referred to as “true and delightful”. In this concert, she will be celebrating the release of her eleventh and twelfth recordings as well as sharing a retrospective of her life’s work…so far.

Linda’s special guests, in addition to daughters Jen and Kristin, to date include Janet Stecher and Susan Lewis (Rebel Voices), Phil Heaven, Jeff Wilson, Tom Rawson, Jan Peters, Laura Smith, Chad Petersen, Kitty King, Sonny Lowe, Scott Slaba, Meryle Korn, Marie Eaton and Ellen van der Hoeven.
