Bell Ringing for the Salvation Army
 
Our Annual Bell-Ringing event for the Salvation Army was a great success this year! On December 10th, Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Bellingham and guests (even Rotarians from other Clubs and former Rotarians!) spent a total of eight hours at all four Haggens stores, ringing bells, caroling, playing instruments, and getting shoppers to fill the kettles. 
 
Our hospitality crew was also out en force, plying our cold Rotarians with coffee, hot chocolate, and other spirit-lifting beverages along with doughnuts and Cathy's own homemade almond roca  (this Rotarian has had it and wow-yum!). 
 
A surprise anonymous matching donor chimed in part-way through the day, essentially doubling our efforts! 
 
All in all, a successful day by the Rotary Club of Bellingham!
