Fairhaven Neighbors is recognized by the City of Bellingham as the non-profit organization representing the Fairhaven neighborhood community in Bellingham, Washington. The purpose of the association is to preserve, protect, and enhance the physical, economic, and social well being of the Fairhaven neighborhood; and to provide a means for citizen involvement in broader community and civic affairs; and to perform other charitable acts.
By participating and working together, we can make our neighborhood the very best it can be.

Join us from 7 to 9 p.m. on the First Wednesday of each month (except August & Dec.) at the Chuckanut Center at 103 Chuckanut Drive N.
Meetings generally have an informative presentation during the first half, followed by a break for social time and refreshments, then re-convening for a business meeting. Neighbors are encouraged to come, and may stay for the full two hours, or you are welcome to slip out before the business meeting begins at 8 p.m. If you have a neighborhood issue you would like to see addressed, please contact Brooks Anderson or any board member.

Bellingham’s new Emergency Manager, Lynn Sterbenz, will give you

the latest information about refreshing your water and updating food supplies.

Do you have the following in your emergency backpack: sanitary

napkins, cash in small bills , a waterproof map, a roll of duct tape,

and a N95 respirator?

We will give away ten N95 respirator masks, considered to be the most effective masks, at this meeting.

will be ready.  Following Lynn’s talk we will continue the discussion while you socialize with your neighbors and enjoy some emergency appropriate refreshments.
