Marysville fireworks show:
The second annual fireworks show in Marysville is on, but people are encouraged to spread out and watch from home or public areas.
Last year the display was at Marysville Pilchuck High School. This time it will be in the south end of town, so more people can see the sparks from their homes. The show will also be streamed online. Fireworks are otherwise illegal in Marysville city limits.
The city also plans to coordinate virtual activities, such as walking and photo contests, along with recipes and instructions for arts and crafts.

YMCA summer camp:
Children are invited to join the YMCA for summer camp this year. Activities will be in person, but precautions will be taken to limit the spread of COVID-19.
This year, the YMCA of Snohomish County has partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Snohomish County to provide mental health services for campers. Counselors will have weekly check-ins at each site, and can work one-on-one with kids who need some more support.

Youth needed for city funding decisions:
Marysville leaders are seeking a high school student to join its Citizen Advisory Board, a panel that helps guide city staff on how to spend federal funds to help low-income families, and to improve access to services for those who live in low-income neighborhoods.
Those interested must apply by July 1. The opening is for a one-year term, but that can be extended depending on the student’s age and interest. The group meets four to six times per year.
Responsibilities include: Evaluating, recommending and amending a consolidated plan and an annual action plan; making recommendations on funding requests submitted by the city; reviewing program performance reports; and other duties that may be assigned by the mayor or city council.
