This Thursday, major project discussion at Barkley Overflow Taps at 4:30pm, everyone welcome.
 
Del Vanderkirk made a plug for a new program called Starfish Pack, which supplies a backpack full of food for homeless kids each Friday for their weekends. It was started in BC Canada, and is now starting up here in Whatcom County. Schools provide food on schooldays, but many kids go hungry on weekends. This’ll be a joint project between the Rotary Clubs, Bellingham Public Schools, and Wildbird Charity (https://www.wildbirdcharity.com). Donations can either be made online https://www.wildbirdcharity.com, or checks can be made out to “Wildbird Charity” and Steve Kimberly will collect. 
Brewers by the Bay 2018 has come and gone, with many smiles and happy people to go along with good weather, good music, and great beer from 30+ breweries that helped make the event a great success. Here's a video slideshow that captures the day.
