Mukiltean of the Day

The Mukiltean of May 12, 2020 is Carolyn (Dode) Carlson!

Dode is the current Mukilteo Seniors Association President and she is working hard with our recreation staff to create connections with our senior community. Dode is always positive, sees the bright side even in these tough times, and cares so much for everyone she meets.

Call your grandma, grandpa, mom, dad, or your other favorite senior in honor of Dode today!

Do you know someone who deserves to be the Mukiltean of the Day? Nominate them!

Summer Planning

There are many summer events that people have been planning for several months, as well as annual summer programs that would usually be gearing up or enrolling participants right now.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, people should not be planning for summer events the same way they normally would. This illness and the measures needed to limit its spread will require adjustments to plans, even ones that are scheduled for weeks or months in the future.

The Health District has a blog about planning for the summer, within this uncertainty.

#Cared4Here Campaign

I Care By

How are you caring for others during the COVID-19 Crisis?

Every day, Snohomish County residents are doing things big and small to help others during the COVID-19 crisis. From teachers finding creative ways to reach out to students, to grocery store clerks smiling at shoppers through masks — we are caring for others in a million little ways.

Sharing will help inspire others to stay strong and perpetuate positive action in our community. Providence Institute for a Healthier Community launched this #Cared4Here campaign to demonstrate our caring. Individual signs can be downloaded here.

Act Now to Get Earlier Payment

Wondering if you have received or will receive your IRS stimulus payment? Get My Payment link allows you to look it up and enter in bank info. If you have any trouble, they have a guide that walks you through ways to find out/enter your info.

The IRS is urging people to access the Get My Payment tool by tomorrow, Wednesday, at noon. They'll start the paper checks in earnest then, and your opportunity to input bank routing info will be ended.

2020 Lighthouse Festival Canceled

The volunteer-led Lighthouse Festival Association has decided to cancel the 2020 Festival, previously scheduled for early September. They are committed to a great 2021 event.
I am sad to hear that this community building event will not happen. It is always a great way to welcome visitors to Mukilteo, and to connect our community. However, I understand the decision- fundraising at this time is difficulty; uncertainty about community willingness to attend a crowded festival event; and the likely safety precautions needed all would make it a tough event to pull off.

I hope we can use this cancellation as an opportunity to show our support for the 2021 Festival, by:
volunteering for 2021
becoming a Friend of the Festival with a $35 or $50 donation
sponsoring the festival at a higher rate, if it's feasible for you.
