Letters to the Editor – April


The Editor:

We would like to thank our community for their diligence throughout the pandemic and their thoughts and care of their neighbors and friends. The last Covid testing at the fire hall will be April 9, 2023. 

I would also like to thank all of the fire department members and community volunteers that have made this a success for our community since 2020. So many of you returned week after week to offer countless hours of volunteer work to help our community have safe and reliable testing. You came together and defined professionalism. 

Best wishes everyone!

Wow, what a showing from our Whatcom County basketball teams at the state tournament in Yakima!

First of all, being a lifelong Borderite, I have to say congratulations to Blaine for bringing home the third place trophy. I also want to give a huge shoutout to the Lynden High School pep band. When it was realized that the Blaine High School pep band would not be able to make it, Lynden stepped up big time.

Not only did they rock the dome with their impressive pep music, but they cheered for Blaine, a fellow Whatcom County team. Even some of their student section, dressed in Borderite orange vests and wigs (most likely supplied by our amazing Blaine cheer squad), cheered and chanted for a good part of Blaine’s semifinal game Friday night.

I think people often root against Lynden, I know I do, because they are just so good and win so often. I for one changed my tune during the tourney. From top to bottom, what I saw from Lynden was a class act. Go Borderites ...
