Front Porch: Volunteers sought for Mukilteo Lighthouse and Gift Shop

Help at the lighthouse

Want to meet visitors from all over the world? Want to spend an afternoon on the waterfront enjoying one of the most beautiful views on the Puget Sound? Here’s an opportunity to do both at the same time — be a volunteer at the Mukilteo Lighthouse and Gift Shop.

Volunteers are asked to spend 5 hours a day, once a month, from April through September, at either the lighthouse or gift shop, greeting visitors and sharing the history of the lighthouse with the thousands of visitors who choose to visit the landmark each year. If this sounds like something you’d like to do, a volunteer training session will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday at the lighthouse. For more information, contact Lisa Romo, at 425-374-7968.
