Inclement Weather Policy

For the safety and well-being of all those concerned, our weather policy is as follows:

When the Bellingham Public Schools are closed due to weather, BAC will be open with a skeleton staff, but there will be no classes or appointments.

When the Bellingham Public Schools are delayed, BAC will be open, but there will be no A.M. classes or appointments.

In the event of extreme weather, we may find it necessary to close the club. Please check the website, social media, call in, or listen to your local radio station for information. This is a very rare occurrence but is sometimes necessary for the safety of our members and employees.

During the Bellingham Public School weekends training days and Holiday break: December 21st-January 5th, you will need to go to our website to get the updates.  In general, we start checking the weather at about 4:00 am and make the call by 4:30 am.  We make every effort to get staff in to open the clubs on time, but please be patient.  Brian Porter and Cathy Buckley usually are making the rounds picking staff up and transporting them into the clubs.  The purpose of our policy is to not put staff in danger and to keep unnecessary cars off the roads until the snowplows and sanders can make the rounds.  Thanks for your patience during weather events.

Toys for Tots

Toys for Tots

Our annual Toys for Tots toy drive begins Monday, December 2nd.  You will notice the bins in the lobbies of both clubs.  Our members have always been generous in the past and this year will be no exception.  As a reward for your generosity, we are giving you the opportunity to take advantage of 2019 club dues rates if you pre-pay for the year.  We are looking forward to seeing all the great toys you bring in.

Caring and Sharing with the Troops

This year we will be supporting the Troops with a club-wide collection of items for assembling care packages.  In conjunction with the VFW of Lynden, we will be assembling boxes of food, personal items, books/balls, and cards.  Please see the lists posted around the club.  The Kids Club is organizing this with the kids writing cards and messages for the troops.  We are very excited to add this effort to our Holiday Giving Campaign.   The same benefit applies to your donations: bring in a bundle of items for the Sharing and Caring for the Troops boxes and take advantage of 2019 pricing when you pre-pay for 2020!
