More than 180 trees in downtown Bellingham are dressed in strings of blue lights thanks to a gift from the WWU Alumni Association.
The lights went up for Western’s second annual “Paint B’Ham Blue for WWU” event Sept. 27 to welcome new students to Bellingham. In November, the lights turned white for the holiday season. The WWU Alumni Association’s assistance helped with the purchase, installation and maintenance of the lights, adding a festive evening air to Bellingham’s downtown.
