2023 All Hands Whatcom


We have an opportunity to address the epidemic of drug use in Whatcom County - and that is our call for all hands on deck, as everyone is needed to build a robust community response to prevent, intervene, treat, and provider recovery support for those who have been impacted by substance use disorders. The Chuckanut Health Foundation invites you to join us as for these community discussions at a series of related events this summer. An All Hands summit will be held on June 27 & 28. Register at https://www.chuckanuthealthfoundation.org/allhands


Your Help Is Really Needed for Our June 4 Gun Responsibility Event


First Congregational Church, along with others, is sponsoring  an informational event on gun responsibility. Your help is needed to make this event a success!!! The committee needs help with the set-up, clean-up and general support for the event. If you can help for even a few minutes after church, it will be very much appreciated. The event is June 4 between First Congregational Church and Garden Street Methodist Church  Sunday services in the church parking lot. Contact Liz Hjelmeseth or Gail Warren.
