Local Service Club Finds a Place to Serve

250_LOC_volunteersWhen the Stanwood/Camano Rotary Club members first heard about The Lights of Christmas in 1997, little did they know that they would become so involved. Warm Beach’s Development Director, Nancy Nelson, soon recruited her fellow Rotarians to join her in serving as volunteers at The Lights of Christmas.

All the years since, up to 20 members and their spouses have assembled to help the first Friday of December. And there is a job for everyone, whether they want to work inside or out, be up front or in the background, handle money, dress up like “Frosty the Snowman” or help park cars.

Some, like Jim Jonson and Scott Thomas from Thomas and Associates, have been volunteering for many years. Jim recalls, “I was amazed that first year. What a surprise to connect with friends and past business acquaintances.” His business associate, Scott, chimed in, “Volunteering at The Lights has become an annual tradition for us!”

Greg Gilday, the 2009-2010 President of the Stanwood/Camano Rotary Club, joined the volunteer effort in 2006. “What a fun job!” said Greg, a local attorney in Stanwood. “I love working with my fellow Rotarians at The Lights.”

If you are part of a club, Sunday School class, or other group, volunteering at The Lights is a rewarding service project everyone can be involved in. If you would like more information about volunteering as a group for The Lights, contact Jessica Beach at the Camp at 360-652-7575 or 800-228-6724.
