Birchwood Neighborhood Association meetings are held every other month on Tuesdays at Birchwood Elementary School Library from 6:30 - 8:00.
Next meeting will be November 25th with Mayor Kelli Linville as our guest.
Birchwood Neighborhood to host events July 11th and August 8th
Drive-in movies are mostly a thing of the past but for two nights this summer you can re-live an experience not seen in Bellingham since the closing of the Samish Twin in 2004, or if you can remember way back to Bellingham's Moonlite or Motor-Vue Drive-in theaters both closed in the 1970's.
On July 11 and Aug. 8, Bellingham’s Birchwood Neighborhood will host drive-in movies in the Park Manor parking lot in front of Big Lots and Albertsons on the corner of Birchwood and Northwest.
The second year of the Friday night drive-ins will feature “Despicable Me 2” on July 11 and “Back to the Future” on Aug. 8. Events are free of charge and open to the public. Movies will be projected onto a 40-foot inflatable screen and audio will be transmitted by an FM signal so you can listen in your car. There will also be outdoor speakers for those that choose to walk or bike to the show. Parking on July 11 opens at 8 p.m. and on Aug. 8 at 7:30 p.m. Movies show at dusk.
The Birchwood Drive-In Movies are sponsored by Park Manor and The Birchwood Neighborhood, www.birchwoodneighborhood.org. Equipment is being provided by Bellingham based Epic Events, www.epicevents.us, the Pacific Northwest Leader in outdoor movie entertainment.
