More than 100 students strolled, danced, motorcycled and light-sabered their way through Bellingham for the Whatcom Memorial Day Parade.
The parade, a signature community event during Ski to Sea Weekend, had been without a significant presence from WWU for many years.
Students from such varied campus organizations as the WWU Hockey Club, AS Recycle Center, men’s basketball team, and the Analog Brass band made their way down Cornwall Avenue, handing out WWU swag and coupons. WWU Parking Services even gave out goodies in yellow parking ticket envelopes.
“I’m excited that so many students showed up to celebrate being a part of the Western and Bellingham community,” says Chris Roselli, director of Community Relations at Western. “We look forward to celebrating our community and honoring our heroes in the parade for years to come.”
