Nearly five years ago I was privileged to be a part of this video about Bellingham that my friend Jerry Millhon of Thriving Communities Initiative produced. Nearly half a decade has passed and some of the people in the video have moved on to other pursuits, including me who sold our business to three employees and moved into semi-retirement. Other businesses have come to the community, new initiatives have been launched, and more people have become involved in the collaborative efforts that make Bellingham and Whatcom County such great places to live and work. In spite of its age, the ideas expressed in the video are still compelling. I hope viewing this will inspire you collaborate even more.
