Creating Community, Representing Residents, and Informing You

Sehome Neighborhood Garage Sale

SAT. AUGUST 28, 2021, 10-2

Jersey St to Newell St, and from E. Maple St to the Arboretum

The Historic Neighborhood

In homage to Harriet Spanel and the historic Liberty St. Garage Sale, the Sehome Board is sponsoring a neighborhood-wide garage sale as an opportunity to meet your neighbors and get rid of all the stuff you cleaned out of the garage during the pandemic.

All are invited to join in, gather friends and wander the historic neighborhood. We encourage folks to think beyond selling items, to sharing and visiting and making this a community event. Sehome folks outside the district are encouraged to join in by adding a table with a welcoming neighbor.

Sehome Neighborhood Meeting June 14th at 7PM

We met on a Monday night with guest speaker Chris Comeau, Director of Transportation speaking about the Lincoln/Lakeway Transportation changes, updates on the Samish Way Urban Village (you’ve all seen the new buildings!) and an update on a new food pantry. You can find the zoom link to the recording in the News section of this website! Sorry for all of you that either had trouble with links, or just could not make it!

Easter Egg Hunt in the Historic Neighborhood

Saturday April 3 from 11AM to 1PM

We had a fabulous day of visiting with neighbors, exchanging seeds and plants. Everyone was so creative! Folks set up games on the sidewalk or yard and there were lots of eggs and candies for the kids. Sidewalk chalk, cookies, giant bunny rabbits with their imaginary friends… Thanks so much for everyone that participated! This was our first year and the reception was great, so expect to celebrate spring again with your community next year.

Our winter meeting was held on Zoom on Tuesday, February 23rd. If you missed us you can hear about housing issues by watching the recording of the meeting. These were the presentations:

  • Historic home presentation from city representatives
  • Homelessness in our community from the Homeless Outreach Team
  • Renting in Bellingham from the Tenants Union
  • Presentation from Bellingham Police Outreach
