Welcome To Lynden The Lynden Chamber of Commerce is more than just a business organization. While it is true that our primary focus is the Lynden business community, it is how we choose to achieve that goal that may seem different to some: Stronger business through a stronger community. Members of the Lynden Chamber of Commerce know that a healthy and active community creates a stronger opportunity for success. In a variety of ways, Lynden businesses go above and beyond to support youth activities, parades, the community center, schools, the Fair and a myriad of other groups, organizations and individuals. This tradition makes a difference in our community in so many ways and is a strong part of what has made Lynden what it is today! So whenever possible, shop with those listed in this directory. They are your neighbors and your friends, but most importantly, like you, they make Lynden the wonderful place it is! Sincerely,

Gary Vis

What Does the Chamber Do? DIRECTORY The Lynden Chamber of Commerce does more than point visitors to the nearest eating establishment, store of their choice or best place to recreate (although they do all that stuff too). The chamber has put together a mixture of events and programs to help serve its members and the community at large. The Community Cashback program helps keep local dollars in the community. This buy-local program returns 5 percent of all money spent through it to local nonprofits. Chamber members also have the opportunity to network at events, get featured in brochures and visitor information outreach, sponsor events, share in member-to-member discounts, join the Community Directory listing, have access to educational programs and enjoy customer referrals and reduced participation fees in community events. For the community, the chamber is active in welcoming new residents with its Welkom Basket program and entertaining the entire region with its annual Farmers Day Parade, Northwest Raspberry Festival and Lighted Christmas Parade.

The Dutch Village Inn

The Lynden KOA

S

oaring above a quaint downtown, pulling your golf clubs up to your room or even packing up your tent in lieu of a cabin nestled into the trees, Lynden has a mix of accommodation options for weary travelers, timeshare members, downtown gazers and campers. The Dutch Village Inn, located inside Lynden’s famous 72-foot-tall windmill, may have the most distinctive rooms in town (www.dutchvillageinn.net), but they aren’t the only windmill in Lynden. A small windmill greets visitors to The Windmill Inn on the

edge of town, located conveniently on State Route 539 (360-354-3424, www.windmillinnlynden.com). For those with Vacation Internationale membership, the championship 18-hole Homestead Golf & Country Club offers a golf getaway in the heart of town. And visitors seeking a little more rugged (but with a swimming pool, pond, mini-golf and more it isn’t all that rugged) place to lay their head, either a campsite, RV site or “Kabin” at Lynden’s KOA is a perfect option (360-354-4772, www.koa.com).

Agri-tourism DIRECTORY

L

yndenites tend to get used to the view — rows upon rows of raspberry plants stretching for miles in the countryside of north Whatcom County. Add more blueberries to the scene now too. Berries, along with dairy cows, define the agricultural landscape of the Lynden area. Beside the windshield view, there are plenty of opportunities to directly experience the bounty of this local food production as well. The statistics are amazing. Each year on 9,000-plus acres, the county grows about two-thirds of the United States’ red raspberries for processing. The production exceeded 63 million pounds in 2013, blessed by ideal weather. First packed into cold storage, the berries find their way into juices, jams, toppings and tasty delights of kitchens and bakeries far beyond Lynden’s 12,600 residents. Just raspberries, which are harvested by machine (including the Oxbo

line manufactured in town), constitute about a $60 million industry.

DIRECTORY

Recently, blueberries have come on stronger. Acreage is rising, and the Lynden area leads the state in this crop too. Strawberries, once dominant, still have a niche. Because of good soil and climate, and the well-honed skills of generations of families (Maberry, Enfield, Rader), Lynden continues to be known as a berry heaven. You can enjoy the summer harvest by buying at one of many berry stands or going to a field for U-pick. Strawberries ripen first in June. Raspberries follow in July and August while blueberries yield into September. Some favorite spots are Barbie’s Berries (384-1260), Bjornstad Farms (398-9874), McPhail Berry Farm (354-5936), Boxx Berry Farm (380-2699), Haugen’s Berries (354-4764) and Kamm Creek Farm (815-4360). A popular annual Farm & Food Finder guide to local outlets open to the public is available at the Lynden Chamber of Commerce and elsewhere. Agriculture is celebrated in the Farmers Day Parade on the first Saturday of June, while the Northwest Raspberry Festival each midJuly brings a ton of family fun to downtown Lynden including the serving of thousands of raspberry sundaes. The Lynden Farmers Market is set up at Fourth and Front streets downtown every Thursday afternoon from June to September.

A new Darigold milk-drying tower, completed in early 2013, has etched its place on the Lynden skyline. The plant takes milk from Whatcom County’s 100-plus dairy farms. More direct to the consumer, Edaleen Dairy has stores both in town (1011 E. Grover St.) and north at the processing site (9593 Guide Meridian Rd). Appel Farms west of Lynden (6605 Northwest Rd.) has added a farm store that features cheeses made right on site at the 500-cow dairy. For a delightful agri-tourism treat, check out BelleWood Acres apple farm and its new farm market, gift shop, distillery and bistro (6140 Guide Meridian Rd). Especially in October, Stoney Ridge Farm (2092 Van Dyk Rd.) is hub of activity harvesting apples and pumpkins. Samson Estates Winery (1861 Van Dyk Rd.) is small and family-owned, using farm berries.

Arts &DIRECTORY Entertainment L

ynden’s Front Street has undergone a number of changes recently, many of which highlight the city’s arts and entertainment offerings. From the Pioneer Museum, to the Jansen Art Center, to the Claire vg Thomas Theatre, there is plenty to choose from.

Just a few doors down from the Lynden Pioneer Museum is Lynden’s newest arts and entertainment outlet, the Jansen Art Center. The center opened in 2012 and added an entirely new feel to the already active art scene in Lynden. Long gone are the cobwebs of two buildings built in the early 1900s, now joined together as an anchor for historic Front Street in

downtown Lynden and an anchor for the entire Whatcom County art community. The Jansen Art Center is ultimately a one-stop place for art classes and rental of art studio space. Programs in music, painting, weaving, pottery, glass arts, children’s crafts, jewelry making, dance and much more (yoga, for example) will happen from the early morning to during the day for homeschool students and seniors, and after school and in the evening. Along with classes that may run weeks at a time or simply a few hours in a workshop setting, the “J” as its owners have now dubbed it, has also hosted an array of live musical events.

Another recent addition to the Lynden art scene is the Lynden Music Festival. Started five years ago, the festival offers a communitywide spectacle of music every fall. With venues throughout the town, including the “J”, local coffee shops, retail businesses, Judson Auditorium, churches and the Lynden Pioneer Museum, Lynden comes to life with the sounds of music through instrument and song. Lynden Music Festival House Concert

The Claire vg Thomas Theatre hosts multiple performances throughout the year, combining local theater groups from Lynden and surrounding cities for numerous diverse theater offerings throughout the year. Lynden Public Schools and Lynden Christian School have active, prolific drama departments, offering many opportunities for quality theater throughout the year. Cast Members from Little Shop of Horrors

The Lynden Pioneer Museum adds its own mix of arts and entertainment, with an ever-changing display of life in the West. The museum features one of the world’s largest collections of antique buggies, along with plenty of displays detailing pioneer life. The museum also hosts a variety of themed events throughout the years.

he giving spirit of folks in Lynden can be seen from the bevy of churches located within town right through to the service clubs and organizations. The Mt. Baker Rotary group has been the most instrumental in helping shape the fortunes of those less fortunate in town, helping to build citywide facilities, including a Million Smiles Playground within the Lynden City Park, or athletic facilities at Lynden High School.

Along with the Rotary Club, two Kiwanis clubs and a Lions club also help keep up everything from local parades to student activities. Add in Toastmasters and other communitywide organizations to an active church membership that runs programs for the needy and there’s plenty of opportunities to serve, get involved and meet new people through Lynden’s active service clubs and organizations.

ith the natural environment engrossing visitors in every direction, there’s plenty of history, nature and pure fun to be had within the Lynden area too. Take a stroll through Lynden’s tree-lined trail system or experience the history of a pioneer homestead at Berthusen Park. Or, if you’d rather, take a short jaunt up Mount Baker for snow sports or head just a few minutes the opposite direction and enjoy water sports on Whatcom County’s bevy of lakes, rivers and Pacific Ocean bays. Within Lynden, the town offers the county’s premier kids’ playground, the community funded and built Million Smiles Playground. Located within Lynden City Park and adjacent to Fishtrap Creek, an ideal wading zone in warmer weather, the playground offers imaginative fun for toddlers through elementary school-aged children and the tallest outdoor slide in the region. Connected by the Jim Kaemingk Sr. trail to other parts of the town, simply hop on the paved path to wander along the creek, visiting Bender Fields — the home to Lynden’s organized youth and community sports, everything from kids’ soccer to city softball leagues — and the residential communities beyond. Berthusen Park, just minutes outside of town, offers playgrounds, fields, walking trails through the forest, a shotgun club, a remote-control 26

aircraft club and a fully restored pioneer barn on what was the Hans Berthusen 1863 homestead. The hours-worth of walking trails give visitors a chance to take in views of the native landscape, tuck close to a creek or even open up to the farmlands to the west. The 240-acre site is also the home to the region’s largest tractor show, which leaves antique steam engines and other attractions on site year-round. Beyond Lynden, enjoy a variety of recreational opportunities between Lynden and Mount Baker, from mountain biking to tubing to alpine hiking to downhill skiing. A trip west toward the saltwater shoreline presents another set of recreational choices, including kayaking, ocean fishing, clamming, hiking, birding and simply walking along the beach. With lakes peppering the county, from Bellingham to Lynden to the Mount Baker area, fishing, boating, paddleboarding and more become common summer events. Even a tubing trip down the Nooksack River isn’t far away. These recreational opportunities only scratch the surface of what Lynden has to offer, whether within its own town (some of the state’s best golf courses are found in and around Lynden) or by using Lynden as a launching point (such as to the San Juan Islands to the west or Canada just minutes to the north). Outdoor recreation is certainly alive in and around Lynden.

ree-lined streets. Quiet residential neighborhoods. Planned communities. Golf-course living. Those are some of just a few of the options for folks looking to move to Lynden. The reasons to relocate to Lynden abound, as seen on the pages of this directory. From the top-notch schools, array of arts opportunities and recreation options to the small-town appeal and safety of Lynden, the town offers all sorts of reasons for folks to move to Lynden. And when they do the real estate market is ready for them. Whether looking to rent an apartment, a seniorfocused condominium or purchase a variety of differing styled homes, the search for a home in Lynden starts and ends with a welcoming community. For those choosing to own condominiums along the championship 18-hole Homestead Golf & Country Club provide one style of living, while purchasing an early 1900s home sits on the other end of the spectrum.

from the bustle of life or houses plucked right into the mix of the town action. As Lynden continues to grow, the town’s new home options prove varied too. Senior living can be found in communities such as Bryce Park, which puts active adults together in the same independent neighborhood. Senior living is also found in plenty near the Homestead golf course. For those looking for urban-style streets, planned residential areas on the east side of town offer smaller homes, while the communities surrounding Homestead boast an array of styles. Prospective Lynden residents — young and old — can choose to buy a brand-new home constructed by a local builder or have one custom-made by the skilled craftsmen in town. As Lynden continues to grow and the amenities expand, Lynden has easily retained its small-town appeal, even with giving prospective homebuyers a bevy of choices on their favored Lynden style of living.

Lynden Dutch Bakery

Y

ou may not know you’re looking for poffertjes, but when you find them in Lynden you’ll be glad you searched. From the traditional Dutch pastry found at the Lynden Dutch Bakery in the heart of Lynden’s historic downtown to old-fashioned diner fare (think Fairway Café) and plenty of steaks to go around (try Bistro 9 at Homestead Golf Course), Lynden has options to keep you fed. Downtown, the bakery and Dutch Mothers Restaurant offer traditional Dutch favorites. But you’ll find a variety of Mexican, Thai, Greek, Italian, fish (JoFish is a new favorite for that crowd), pizza and other establishments too, not to mention

40

The 9 Bistro

traditional down-home comfort staples. Speaking of comfort, on the west side you won’t have to look hard for Jake’s Western Grill, also a popular catering option. Of course, if you’re in a hurry, bakery and coffeecentric items can be readily found at some of Lynden’s local coffee shops or its homegrown The Woods Coffee regional chain, with three locations serving Lynden. From fresh Northwest cuisine, food with an international flair or even national chain awareness, Lynden has a bit of everything for the foodie in you, even poffertjes.

Schools & Education

L

ynden’s education system excels, both with academic prowess and diversity of options. Some of the best public and private K-12 schools in the state sit inside the city limits and one of the state’s top universities is just 20 miles outside of Lynden. And local schools know a thing or two about extra-curricular activities too, with both Lynden and Lynden Christian high schools winning multiple state titles in the last year and the Lynden football team, Lynden Christian girls basketball team and Lynden boys basketball team showcasing some of the best historic and current records in the state. And that doesn’t even mention the success of the local high school drama and music scene. The Lynden School District boasts three K-5 elementary schools, a middle school, a high school and a parent-partnership campus. With enrollment

of about 2,600 full-time equivalent students, the district has over 150 classroom teachers. Lynden Christian School offers a preschool-4 elementary school, 5-8 middle school and a high school, with all three buildings located on one campus in the heart of Lynden. With about 1,100 students, the school also has a Bellingham campus. Other private schools in the area include Ebenezer Christian School, located north of town and founded in 1910, Covenant Christian School, Cornerstone Christian School and many parents active in the 600-family Whatcom Homeschool Association. Western Washington University, Whatcom Community College and Bellingham Technical College are all located just minutes from Lynden in Bellingham.

Shopping DIRECTORY

Katz Coffee & Used Books

T

here’s an opportunity to get lost within the differing shopping worlds of Lynden. Don’t expect mass-produced merchandise to jump out at you. Instead enjoy the hunt of shopping, searching through handmade items, antique shops and specialty stores to find what you need—and things you never even knew you needed.

Within the historic downtown district, search through the variety of antique stores, turning old barn windows into decorative wall hangings and antique farm parts into trendy garden décor. There’s plenty to see in the antique shops alone, but that isn’t all Lynden has to offer. From high-art at the Jansen Art Center to lost reads at Katz Coffee & Used Books and from furniture to shoes, downtown has a variety of options. You can find comic books (Heroes Resource), high-end fashion (Cheeks), artisan and used décor (Picket Fence), personalized flower arrangements (Blossoms), clothing and yarn (Wear on Earth) and fabric of all sorts (Tangled Threads and Calico Country). For those looking to add that perfect decoration or

44

home accent, Grandiflora offers one of the trendiest shops north of Seattle, with a constantly changing array of items for the home and garden. And if the outdoors is your thing, you can get all the advice and inside scoops on the best fishing and hunting—not to mention all the gear you need for it—at Dave’s Sports Shop in Lynden’s Fairway Center, also home to a top-flight children’s store, cute décor shop, hardware store, small-town drug store and plenty more. A place like Dave’s Sports Shop is grand central for all fishing, hunting and camping gear, clothing, and licenses, and whatever else is needed to be safe and successful out in the wild. The personal touch of longtime employees and owners knowing their gear and their terrain are an example of Lynden’s serviceoriented shopping touch. And, like Grandiflora in the home design world, the owners of Dave’s also visit national trade shows to stay current on the latest trends. Shopping in Lynden is an activity that offers the chance to explore, learn, and of course, find.

Welcome New R esidents! DIRECTORY A

wonderful program offered by the Lynden Chamber of Commerce is the Welkom Basket. This program was put in place to welcome new residents to town and is a great tool for them to get to know their new home. Each basket is filled with coupons and gifts from local businesses and is personally delivered to the residents by our wonderful Lynden Ambassadors, Ada Voskuilen and Virgi Diephuis. Ada and Virgi share about Lynden, and also take that time to get to know each new family, giving us the ability to discover why they moved here, and what they are looking for.

This program has proven to be an invaluable tool in helping us make the families feel welcome, and it is also the chance for the new residents to get to know Lynden and be reminded why this is such a great place to live. It also gives our members a chance to get information about their business out to the community in a fun and inviting way. To request a Welkom Basket or to be a part of this great program contact the Lynden Chamber of Commerce at 360.354.5995
