Town hall meetings to discuss college

The Office of Financial Management and the University of Washington would like to hear from folks about recommendations for a new University of Washington campus in our area.

Two town hall meetings are planned so the public can comment:

7 to 9 p.m. tonight, Cavelero Mid High School, 8220 24th St. SE, Lake Stevens.

7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Marysville-Pilchuck High School, 5611 108th St. NE, Marysville.

Four town hall meetings have been held so far in Island, Snohomish and Skagit counties. The meetings in Lake Stevens and Marysville are the last to be held before the preliminary academic plan and site options for the new UW North are due to the governor and the Legislature on Nov. 15.

Teen party at Oak Harbor Library

Come in costume for a chance to win door prizes at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Oak Harbor Library, 147 W. Main St., Oak Harbor. There will be pizza at 6, then a scary movie for teens.

It’s a family Halloween

The Lake Stevens Family Center is planning its annual Family Safe Downtown Halloween for 5 to 9 p.m. Wednesday in downtown Lake Stevens.

The evening features a costume parade down Main Street, a carnival for children at the senior center with free candy and prizes, and a “not-so-haunted house” for older youth.

Businesses are expecting trick-or-treaters, and Jay’s Market plans to offer free photos of children in costume.

Class teaches floral arrangements

Learn the art of Japanese flower arrangement through a series of classes offered by the city of Lynnwood.

The classes are scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Nov. 27 at the Lynnwood Recreation Center, 18900 44th Ave. W. The supply fee is $30.
