The Birch Bay Chamber of Commerce invited John Cooper executive director of Bellingham – Whatcom County Convention and Visitors’ Bureau to their Tuesday meeting to explain a new tourist booster program.

“‘Bring it Home’ is a campaign calling for grass root support to help us attract visitors to Whatcom County,” Cooper explained. He listed nine ways everyone can get involved, but highlighted two.

“Bring your organization’s events - retreat, reunion, seminar, to Whatcom County. For example, a physics teacher at Sehome high school got the Young Engineer’s International Bridge-building competition to come to Bellingham. Families add up to a lot of tourists and customers,” he said. “Individuals can make a big difference to the community, encourage friends and family to visit,” Cooper said.

The next Birch Bay coming event, free for everyone, is a new game Disc Golf to be held May 4 and 5 at the Birch Bay Golf Club. People tee off with a frisbee-type disc, throwing it toward one basket after another. For more information on this event, go to www.birchbaychamber.com
