This summer, Lynden-native Bailee Mulder is writing for ourLynden. We asked her a few questions so you could get to know her better:
What were your favorite things about growing up in Lynden?
“Gosh, there are so many things. Just a few – I loved the summers (picking raspberries, running through cow sprinklers, Razz Fest and the Fair), transporting myself everywhere in town by longboard in middle school, and Friday night football games (I graduated from Lynden High School in 2014).
I’m glad I was able to feel comfortable and safe at almost all times here, that’s something that’s really important to me. I loved growing up knowing so many people, like when I graduated I felt like I knew everyone in my class, which isn’t the case for a lot of people.
I love how Lynden is perfectly placed – an hour from the mountains, the water, and just minutes from Canada. It was fun to explore the surrounding areas growing up.
