The RE Store in Bellingham will celebrate its 20th anniversary with a special customer-appreciation event from noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 22.
The festivities will include free hot dogs and lemonade, an in-store treasure hunt, live music from The Gallus Brothers, High Mountain String Band and other, the Mahala Dancer troupe, a recycled art station, as well as games and other activities.
The event will also feature free design consultations with Eberhard Eichner, a lead designer and builder with The RE Store’s REvision Division.
The RE Store is a program of the nonprofit organization RE Sources for Sustainable Communities. The store has saved more than 60 million pounds of building materials from needless disposal in its 20 years—the equivalent of 75 fully loaded Boeing 747s.
The nonprofit store employs up to 40 people during the peak of the building season and also features a volunteer and job-training program.
The RE Store is located at 2309 Meridian St.
