News from the ladies...
The Editor:
The Ladies Auxiliary of Custer Post 9474 of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, which encompasses the Blaine, Custer, and Ferndale areas, would like to thank the community for its past support of our community service projects and youth programs.
We are starting the year with a couple of new community service projects and could use your assistance. First, we will be collecting greeting card fronts to send to the St. Jude’s Ranch for Children in Boulder, Nevada. The children at the ranch recycle used cards into new cards, which they then sell to earn extra spending money. All sizes of unused envelopes are also appreciated. Look for the drop off box at the Blaine Library. For more information, please contact Stephanie at 318-8352.
We will also be collecting items for the Seattle Veterans Association Hospital. Items that are needed include afghans, microwave popcorn, socks, and miscellaneous comfort items. For a complete needs list, please see the box at the Blaine Library. Phone cards are especially needed. For more information or to donate large quantities, please contact our Auxiliary President Tami at 384-5406.
Our post would like to extend a thank you to all those who have served or are presently serving our country in the military. We appreciate the freedom that their sacrifices have provided Americans.

Thanks...
The Editor:
Hats off to Al Dahl for the beautiful remodel of his building at 3rd and H streets, complete with clock. What a wonderful improvement for downtown Blaine. Every time we pass by your lovely building our spirits will be lifted.
Blaine owes a big thank you to Al and another to Pierre Constantin down the block for transforming ugly buildings into very attractive ones, and demonstrating by their substantial investments, their faith in the future of Blaine. Their contributions will benefit our town for years to come.

Whatcom Physical Therapy and Fitness would like to thank all our clients who contributed to our fourth annual food drive for the Blaine Food Bank.
The drive ran from November through January. Our clients have contributed over 500 pounds of food to the local food bank this year.
The staff of Whatcom Physical Therapy and Fitness are proud to work in a community that gives back as much as Blaine does to its own. Thanks again.
