Lewis Publishing Co., Inc.

To our valued readers, This special magazine published by the Lynden Tribune and Ferndale Record celebrates the Whatcom County business community and its many contributions to our wonderful quality of life. We all know this is a great place to live, learn, work, and play. It is our hope that after reading through these pages you’ll get to know these businesses, their owners, and their employees just a little bit better and have a greater understanding of what they have to offer. Inside our annual magazine of Who’s Who in Business in Whatcom County you’ll see pages of friendly faces—your neighbors—who offer an amazing variety of goods and services. “Who’s Who” is more than just a directory to the businesses that make Whatcom County their home. This special publication also helps to define our communities that are working hard to establish and build a new economic future. As our population growth continues, so does the number and variety of professional services, retail opportunities and business-tobusiness outlets. Every year there is less and less reason to leave the county to shop or find top professionals. A mere peek at these pages should convince you of that. The Lynden Tribune and Ferndale Record have always seen ourselves as an integral part of this community. We value this opportunity each year to publish these snapshots of people and businesses that make life special in this, the most beautiful part of Washington state. Please enjoy reading our 2012 Who’s Who Business and Service Directory magazine. We are proud to be associated with these fine businesses and professionals in Whatcom County. And, more importantly, we are proud to do business with many of them. Sincerely,

Michael D. Lewis Publisher

(From the south, take Interstate 5 Exit 256 and head north on State Route 539; from the north, take I-5 Exit 270 and head east on Birch Bay-Lynden Road.) Dutch heritage has shaped Lynden’s culture, churches and businesses. While the town attracts many tourists, it also serves surrounding rural residents.
