Front Porch: Enroll now to attend Lynnwood U
Lynnwood residents can now enroll for Lynnwood University, a free eight-week course that shows how local government works and can help people take advantage of city programs and services.
Demonstrations, tours and hands-on activities are presented by city staff, council members and the mayor.
The sessions are 6 to 8:30 p.m. Thursdays, Sept. 5 through Oct. 24.
Residents can tour the waste water treatment plant, try on firefighting gear, climb a 100-foot fire ladder and learn the role that lumber and eggs played in Lynnwood's development.
