2012 Lynden Community Profile & Membership Directory

1


Chamber Director’s Welcome Letter from the Director The Lynden Chamber of Commerce has for decades represented the businesses of the Lynden area in a variety of ways. The most visible are the many community events that are organized by the Chamber, including the Farmer’s Day Parade, Northwest Raspberry Festival, Harvest Festival and Christmas Lighted Parade. Less noticeable to the community are the educational classes, advertising programs, assistance with other organizations and the joint efforts of the City of Lynden and the Lynden Chamber to address community-wide issues such as parks and recreation, maintaining a positive business environment and other issues that contribute to making Lynden such a special place. It is not by accident that in the pages you are about to peruse, the best businesses in the Lynden area have chosen to offer their services. This community directory, like so much of what is accomplished in Lynden, is not done without the participation of these and other Lynden Chamber of Commerce members. It is the love of community that these businesses demonstrate daily that is so challenging to demonstrate within the pages of this fine publication. If you are a visitor or newcomer to Lynden and the surrounding area, we welcome you. Please be our guest and enjoy the wonderful parks, shopping and dining. If you call Lynden home, please look at the services offered by the businesses within, considering them first for your needs due to their efforts and contributions to the community in which you live.

Live The Kaemingks choose their home for the future by The Lynden Tribune

There’s a certain quality of life you search for when you start thinking of where you want your kids to settle down. Where you want them to raise their families. And that quality of life was in the Kaemingks’ hometown of Lynden. Kevin and Kelly Kaemingk, high-school sweethearts who left Lynden for more than two decades, recently returned home to finish raising their three children, now ages 19, 16 and 12, and provide a family atmosphere with a different pace of life than they had known living outside of Los Angeles. The Kaemingk name is well-known in Whatcom County. With Kevin’s father, Elmer, and Kevin’s uncle Hank (a former Sol H. Lewis Man of the Year) and uncle Jim (a former Lynden mayor and the namesake of Lynden’s trail system) and aunt Alyda Mulder in the family mix, there was no shortages of cousins for Kevin growing up. And there were no shortage of siblings either, as Kevin is one of six children in his family (three boys and three girls). Brother Dan has taught at Lynden Christian Middle School for over two decades and sister Kathy (Boon) has lived in Whatcom County her entire life too. But after growing up at the end of River Road south of town, the Lynden Christian High School graduate decided to attend Northwestern College in Iowa. His high school sweetheart, one year behind him at Lynden High School, wasn’t far behind. When Kevin graduated from college, he landed his first job at Valley Christian Schools in Cerritos, Calif. Kelly followed a semester later to do her student teaching and was fortunate enough to land a job there too. The couple has been married for 22 years. In California, Kevin spent five years as a teacher, five years as the principal of the middle school, six years as the principal of the high school and five years as the 2012 Lynden Community Profile & Membership Directory

school’s superintendent. But in 2010 the family came back home for good, where Kevin took over as the principal at Lynden Christian High School and Kelly teaches math. “We started thinking about where we wanted our kids to settle down,” Kevin said. “We hope they settle around us and we asked ourselves what kind of schools would they send their kids to, what kind of quality environment would be around them? Lynden is a great community.” Of course, family was a major draw, giving the Kaemingks the opportunity to reconnect. By returning home, they’ve found that the slower pace of life (and what isn’t slower than the L.A. area?) has been “great” and being able to plug right into a community, a church and even a neighborhood has its advantages. “We are able to own our house for 60 to 70 percent of the cost (of California homes), able to have a yard and we even know our neighbors,” Kevin said. “That didn’t happen in California.” Another thing that didn’t happen previously was the ability of the family’s youngest to ride his bike to a friend’s house a few blocks away, something simply not allowable with the massive amounts of traffic in their previous hometown. Sure, the family misses some of the allure of the big city, but Kevin said he is more than happy to trade those entertainment options in for something he believes is better, something that centers around community. 3

Churches

Lynden-Area Places of Worship (Courtesy of the Lynden Ministerial Association)

Faith has played a large part in the history of the Lynden community. From the time Phoebe Judson first invited other pioneer families to Sunday services in her home, Lynden has hosted a wide variety of faiths and houses of worship. Many of our residents find their church families to be a source of comfort, inspiration, recreation and hope. On any given night you can find groups of citizens gathering together for study and fellowship; spending time getting to know one another better and in turn, making Lynden a stronger community. Many of the Lynden-area churches are members of the Chamber of Commerce and we would be pleased to provide you additional information. Simply contact us at the Chamber office and we would be more than happy to put you in touch with them.

Work

Dave’s Sports Shop by The Lynden Tribune Staff The history of what is now Dave’s Sports Shop goes back to 1957. That’s when Jude and Gert VanderHoek opened Jude’s Sporting Goods & Housewares in downtown Lynden at today’s location of Colony House Furniture. Within a few years, the sporting goods section outgrew the housewares. Jude’s shop served as the destination of choice for local sportsmen to get their gear — and maybe also the lowdown on the best fishing and hunting spots. The year 1972 brought Bill Stinson at Dave’s Sport Shop the first of several expansions. The VanderHoeks moved the store to the new Fairway Center (where Family Christian Bookstore is located today) and joined the Coast to Coast Hardware franchise. In 1976, son Dave VanderHoek and Dean Hendricks joined in partnership with Jude and Gert. By 1986, having outgrown their space, the partners eagerly took on the task of moving and expanding slightly west in the center. The store continued to serve the community’s hardware, garden and sporting needs through 1999 when Coast to Coast went through a corporate merger resulting in a name change locally to Ace Hardware & Sports. 2012 Lynden Community Profile & Membership Directory

Through all these years, the sporting goods section continued to grow, yet remained in a tight 2,000foot section at the back of the store. It always was a popular gathering place for local sports enthusiasts. With the addition of a new Fairway Center section five years ago, things fell into place for Dave to have his own sporting goods shop, and he jumped at the opportunity. He now has 6,300 square feet of space, more than triple that of before. And it feels like every square inch is needed. Bill Stinson, archery specialist, is coming up on 20 years of working with Dave VanderHoek — the longest among 11 employees. “The VanderHoeks are great people to work for, and I love the Lynden community,” Stinson says. His expertise in archery has been an asset to the store and a springboard for instructing and coaching local youth in archery, with notable success in state and national competitions. A place like Dave’s Sports Shop is grand central for all fishing, hunting and camping gear, clothing, licenses and whatever else is needed to be safely and successfully out in the wild. Stinson likes to promote archery because the hunting seasons are longer than those for guns. In terms of trends, flyfishing and reloading of one’s own ammunition seem to be on the upswing, and Dave’s is the main store in the region to stay on top of such things, he said. The shop is able to help people sell guns online, reaching a far greater audience. It can also place quick special orders for merchandise that may not be in stock. Both Bill and Dave head off to national shows especially during the winter to see what new merchandise they need to buy to keep the store stocked. 27


Work Agriculture In the midst of 102,584 acres of farmland in Whatcom County, Lynden is the center for many agricultural products and services. The shipment and processing of milk alone results in approximately 150 jobs. Several major farm equipment manufacturers and dealerships and feed and fertilizer businesses thrive here. Whatcom County is undoubtedly a primary reason why agriculture is Washington State’s top industry. With an annual agricultural production market value of $326 million, the county’s agriculture industry has an impressive $1 billion economic impact each year. Did you know Lynden’s Darigold plant is the second largest producer of powdered milk in the United States? In addition, more than 65% of the nation’s red raspberries are produced in Whatcom County, the largest per capita crop of red raspberries in the world. There are numerous local farms welcoming visitors to stop by and watch production of, or buy freshfrom-the-farm products. The Chamber’s Visitor Center can provide a map of local area farms.

Bellewood Acres is renown for their Honeycrisp gourmet eating apples and fun family friendly atmosphere.

28

Whatcom County’s annual agricultural production ranks in the top 3 percent of farm counties in the U. S.

Appel Farms provides free samples and a viewing room to watch the family make their specialty cheeses, which include several flavors of Gouda, a Dutch favorite. Samson Estates Winery grows their own raspberries used to make their award-winning raspberry wine. Stop by Edaleen Dairy’s store and processing plant on the Guide and treat yourself to the best soft-serve ice cream cone anywhere! Visit Lynden in the summer and pick your own berries at Barbie’s Berries, or come in the fall for the best apples anywhere at Stoney Ridge Farms and BelleWood Acres. Don’t forget to pick up fresh hazelnuts at Holmquist Farms and fresh potatoes at Bedlington Farms as well!

It’s easy to understand why combining agriculture and tourism is a growing trend around Lynden . . . cheese, wine, dairy products, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, apples, hazelnuts, and potatoes are just a few of the local products that make the north county special.

Berthusen Park showcases outdoor activities, local history by The Lynden Tribune Staff Park’s namesake moved to Whatcom County from Iowa in 1863

Located just two miles west of downtown Lynden, Berthusen Park offers a scenic piece of local history along with family-friendly activities both annual and daily. The park’s namesake, Hans Berthusen, moved to Whatcom County in 1863. A Norwegian immigrant, Berthusen began his 30

time in the United States in Iowa before traveling west and settling on 160 acres. He eventually added 80 more acres. He succeeded in both dairy and cultivation, and eventually married Lida Hawley, Christmas Day, 1889. Lida passed away in late 1943, and Hans died a few months later in February 1944. They left 263 acres of land to the city of Lynden. That land became what is now Berthusen Park, but many may ot know just how long the land has functioned as a park. Larry McPhail is a member and trustee of the antique tractor club that has leased about 30 acres of the park since 1976. He said Berthusen and many Lynden residents treated the land as a park before it was officially a park. McPhail is also on a city advisory committee on the park. “Twenty to 30 years before it was given to Lynden as a park,” McPhail said, “it was already a park made by Hans for all the kids to know and

enjoy. All their picnics for the school, they were all at Berthusen Park. Straight across the road from his house, he grew popcorn. He made all sorts of snacks for the kids while they were at the park. They would actually pop it over an open fire.” The city of Lynden has added several kitchens to the park, which can be rented and used by families and other groups for various functions. The park also features Hans and Lida Berthusen’s barn, built from old growth trees cut from around the land. Visitors can also enjoy the playground, hiking trails, tractor club displays, Bertrand Creek, the Lynden RC Model Airplane Flying Club and the Lynden Shotgun Club (located on the western portion of the land). The largest annual event at the park is the Puget Sound Antique Tractor Show & Threshing Bee, which takes place the first week of each August.

Housed in a historic building built in 1911, the museum immediately became a destination, thanks in part to generous donations from Lynden and Whatcom County citizens of artifacts, documents, photos, and other memories from their pioneer forefathers. Today it encompasses a collection of 25,000 objects displayed in 5 galleries that cover over 28,000 square feet. Life-size contextual recreations of a pioneer homestead and historic business fronts provide a realistic look into the life of turn-of-the-century Lynden and Whatcom County. Visitors can look into scenes from the past and discover the lifestyles and stories of those that built our community. The museum also has the only regular exhibit on the development of Transportation from Horse to Horse power. Visitors and community members alike can explore the amazing Fred Polinder Buggy Collection, a collection of 49 unique horse drawn vehicles (the largest publicly displayed collection west of the Mississippi) and view an annually changing exhibit on the history of the automobile that features new vintage autos every spring. In addition many opportunities exist at the museum that enrich the lives of locals. The museum serves as a resource center through its public archives, holds educational programs for local schools and is regularly staffed by dedicated, enthusiastic volunteers. It also offers special tours and community events throughout the year. Over 800 spectators will gather in October to witness demonstrators and historic re-enactors recreate life in Whatcom County a century past. Finally, the museum offers a cozy gift shop full of great deals and unique local items. For easy access to these special offerings you can contact the museum by phone at (360) 354-3675. Membership serves as the museum’s primary means of support and members receive advance announcements of upcoming events, museum store discounts and free admission.
