THIS EVENT IS AT 11AM. Join us at our Lynden location for an in-person event with local author, Ron Polinder!

Mr. Polinder's presentation will be at 11am in the conference room of the Inn at Lynden, followed by book signing in Village Books until 2pm. Registration is recommended to reserve your seat.

COVID protocol for our in-person events requires proof of full vaccination upon arrival. Masking is optional. Thank you for your cooperation.


This did not start out to be a memoir; rather a compilation of professional and opinion-writing to one day be read by our children and grandchildren. Early in the process it became clear that some chronology was needed to give background and context. Thus a memoir, plus. Still intended for the extended family, it is full of stories and perspectives from two different cultures and geographies, different decades and histories. This will also be of interest to a general audience who may not read the whole book but will enjoy reading "in" the book. Polinder writes with voice-to know him will be to hear him telling his stories. Honest, insightful, warm and funny-you will learn much about leadership, relationship and partnership, most often with a smile.

Ron Polinder grew up on a dairy farm in Lynden, Washington, attended Calvin University majoring in History.  What followed was a 46-year career, split between teaching and administration in New Mexico, serving Native students and families, and the principalship at Lynden Christian High School—all mixed with grand adventure, warm friendship, but also deep suffering.

*Online registration closes one hour prior to the event. Spaces may be available at the door.
