BELLINGHAM — The Arch of Healing and Reconciliation downtown is due to add six more languages that welcome more community members.
The new languages will be Croatian, Lebanese, Iranian, Filipino, Polish and Lesotho.
The event to recognize this will be at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, at the arch at the corner of Lottie and N. Commercial streets.
The 15 languages already on are Lummi Tribe, Punjabi, Russian, Urdu, Chinese, Hebrew, Ukrainian, English, Nooksack Tribe, German, Dutch, Spanish, Vietnamese, Hindi and Japanese.
The Arch of Healing and Reconciliation, to recognize immigrant communities that built Bellingham and Whatcom County, was dedicated in April 2018.
Designated donations to this project can be sent to the Whatcom Community Foundation, 1500 Cornwall Ave. #202, Bellingham, WA.
