“Thank you, City of Bellingham’s Mayor Linville and the Bellingham Arts Commission for awarding “Bellingham Art Beat” the Mayor’s Arts Award.  It is a great honor. In addition, I need to extend a special thank you to the many dedicated listeners in Bellingham and online who follow the show, and the over 58 guests who have appeared on “Bellingham Art Beat”, shared their stories and inspired many.  A town is only as great as it’s people.  The people of Bellingham are extraordinary!”  ~Shannon Laws, Community Radio Producer
