A Tradition of Helping Our Neighbors In Need

Thank you for helping us help our neighbors in need.  Every time we help you buy or sell a home, we make a donation to the Windermere Foundation which supports organizations that provide shelter, clothing and hope for families in need.  In the spirit of giving we wish you a wonderful holiday season.

This year Windermere Whatcom owners, agents, and staff put together 60 complete turkey dinners that were donated to the Dorothy House, Lydia Place, Women’s Coalition, Bellingham School District, Lynden Community Services, and local Birch Bay families. A tradition of serving our community over the holiday season, Windermere associates from every office donated the items to complete the turkey dinners and hand delivered to each of our families in need. A special thank you the Box Maker who donated the boxes to deliver our dinners!

June 25th & 26th- Lake Padden Triathlon

The Padden Triathlon is an excellent first, second, or twenty-second triathlon. The course is simple, stunning and well-staffed. They’ve made everything as simple as possible so you can focus on the event and enjoy. For those of you interested in Triathlons, this is a good one year after year!

Happy Valley to South Hill to Fairhaven

One of the best parts about living in the Bellingham area is the ability to walk and explore our beautiful neighborhoods. A particular favorite of mine is the walk from Happy Valley down Mill Avenue to Fairhaven.

A great walk any time of year, the Spring and Summer months become particularly amazing as gardens bloom, trees bud and the skies become a brilliant blue. From the corner of Mill and 21st Street, a walk to Fairhaven only takes about 15 minutes depending on how many flowers you stop to smell. As you come over the crest of South Hill, Bellingham Bay is laid out before you! With the San Juan Islands to the West and Downtown Bellingham to the East, this is a breathtaking view!

I usually wrap up my walks by heading into Tony’s Coffee  or the Harris Avenue Café in Fairhaven. Grab a locally roasted cup of coffee or a delicious breakfast before you start your walk back up the hill!
