Starting tomorrow, here's a message from Denis...In light of the Department of Public Health’s recently issued Mask Advisory, all employees and visitors in any Bellingham Municipal Building will be required to wear a mask effective Thursday December 23rd. Employees will be expected to wear a mask at all times while in public spaces and while serving the public. Please use discretion while in your office at your desk, if you are able to maintain social distancing and you are not serving the public the use of the mask is optional. Masks will be provided to all offices and will be available in the Lobby of buildings for visitors. In the event visitors come into the building unmasked please make them aware of the requirement. At no time should you confront the public if they refuse to comply. We all hope this policy will not be in effect for very long and look forward to being “unmasked” soon! Thanks to everyone for your cooperation, Denis.

For Release, December 1, 2020

Sharing the MyFM Station of the Year Press Release with the BBA membership, and the following offer...

The MyFM Quest for the Best Contest simply exploded and grew into the biggest promotion this region had ever seen with over 1,200 local businesses nominated in over 234 categories, and then over 256,000 votes in just 2 weeks! 


“We believed our listeners, fans and followers were sick and tired of toxic politics and pandemic talk and we were right.  I think this was the number one reason why the judges from the Wyoming Broadcasters Association selected MyFM,” McAuliffe said.

                                                                                My FM Award/ page 2

"The Station of the Year Award is the one award that every station strives to win.  It's the most cherished station award the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association presents,” explained Jordan Walton, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association.  “My FM 101.3 truly epitomizes what

LOCAL radio, and service to the community is all about, and we're proud to salute them with this honor for a record 11th time.”

“The Station of the Year” award is presented annually by the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association to the most outstanding radio station in the Commonwealth, and is open to all of the more than 200 radio stations.

The “Station of the Year” award is given to the top station in Massachusetts that exemplifies overall excellence in all phases of operation.  The judges, members of the Wyoming Broadcasters Association, cited MyFM 101.3 had experienced extraordinary growth of audience, client base, but most importantly, MyFM was providing exceptional service to their listeners, community officials, and local organizations.

Bellingham Historical Commission Museum Renovation – How You Can Help!

Over the summer, the Commission members, with the cooperation and encouragement of the town administration, led by Town Administrator Denis Fraine, and assisted by a cadre of volunteers, embarked on a project to update the museum facility.

When the museum moved into the former library building in the late 1980s/early 1990s no facility upgrades were done.  It was time for a fresh coat of paint and more. 

In July we began by boxing up the collections from the book shelves and moving larger items into the basement of the building to be stored while the upstairs was renovated.  We were assisted by community volunteers for this project, including a few BHS football players.

Town Carpenter Ron Paulhas and his senior volunteers painted the whole interior, walls and ceiling and Ron fabricated fabulous new covers for the radiators.  We contracted with Bellingham resident and Owner of Car-Leo Floor Covering in Milford, Carl Deleso, to replace the worn,  outdated carpet with new weathered oak laminate flooring.  New bamboo window shades have been purchased to update the window treatments.  Gary Remillard, of G&L Electric, assisted by electrician and commission member Rick Marcoux, will be updating the lighting.

We are now working on reorganizing the collections to make the museum a more cohesive browsable collection of Bellingham history to tell our story.  The museum will have sections with categories of history, including:  schools and municipal items; farming and household artifacts; sports and recreation materials; military, public safety and civil defense items; as well as a reference library  section that will feature town reports, school yearbooks, and past issues of the Crimpville Comments.  Immediately upon entering will be a display case that will depict a timeline of Bellingham’s Founders.

We have had great support from the town to make this project possible, and we are now at the point that we are reaching out to members of the Bellingham community for financial support to complete the project. We are in need of the following furnishings and supplies to complete this project at the level we think the community deserves:  New display cases, tables and chairs as well as supplies for professional display of collections.

Below are some of our before and after photographs of the renovation as well as details about our sponsorship and  donation opportunities.  We’d appreciate your support! 



Here's another grant opportunity for all of you, so blasting out to the BBA                                                                   https://www.empoweringsmallbusiness.org/covid-19-response/sector-specific-relief-grant-program-massachusetts-businesses

This was released this week by the State for specific industries listed on the site who have been hit the hardest. Bellingham does not have a role this time but it would be great to get as many Bellingham businesses applying!
