Husband-and-wife team Kristi and Percy Lankhaar, who live in Birch Bay, have joined The Northern Light and will be delivering the newspaper to newsstands across the county.
They take the place of Wayne and Linda Braun, who retired in December 2013.
Both are retirees, and look forward to the prospect of keeping busy with this new endeavor. “It’s a good thing for both of us,” Kristi said. “And we’re really enjoying it. Everyone’s friendly and it’s something that we can do together.”
Percy was a general contractor before he retired, and built several houses in Birch Bay before deciding to move to the area from Bellingham and build his own home. Kristi was a landscaper and housekeeper. “We really liked it here,” Percy said.
