Whether through volunteering your time, donating boats, equipment, or monetary gifts, or simply telling your friends about the CBC, each of you have been integral to achieving the CBC's mission: access, education, safe recreation, and marine stewardship on Bellingham Bay.
We invite you to get out your dancing shoes and join us on December 7 to celebrate another phenomenal summer connecting people with Bellingham Bay.
