The Rotary Club of Lake Union will host two fundraisers in October to help fund a new ambassador program in Lake Union Park.
The program will be run by The Center for Wooden Boats and will put staff and trained volunteers in the park to provide information to visitors about the park. The ambassador will help guide visitors to the rich array of unique experiences and historic stories they can explore in the park, which are made possible through the collaborative efforts of the park’s many non-profits. They can also help visitors find a bite to eat nearby or show them how to navigate to the next spot on their journey.

10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
