BELLINGHAM (July 8, 2022) — WECU is the Presenting Sponsor for the Northwest Raspberry Festival, a two-day event in downtown Lynden on July 14 & 15.
WECU has been a sponsor of the event, which is produced by the Lynden Chamber of Commerce, for several years. Two other adjacent events complete the full offering: the Curt Mayberry 3 on 3 Classic and the Razz n’ Shine Car Show.
The Northwest Raspberry Festival celebrates the local raspberry harvest. Washington produces 95% of the nation’s red raspberry crop. 65% of the country’s raspberries are grown in Whatcom County by approximately 100 growers.
At the Raspberry Festival, WECU will have a photo background, a booth with prizes, and a pop-a-shot competition. The best scores in three age categories, 6-9, 10-14, and 15+, will win a prize.
