A park turns 50!


There will be a celebration at Lighthouse Marine Park to celebrate the park’s 50th anniversary on Saturday, June 17 at 11 a.m. Back on June 16, 1973, both Lighthouse Marine Park and Monument Park were officially transferred to Whatcom County. Bennett Blaustein, in collaboration with the Point Roberts Historical Society and Whatcom County Parks & Recreation department, has organized a program of festivities, which will include a historical talk, guest speakers and an exhibition of historical photos. A lunch of hotdogs and chips will be provided. Should the park’s parking lot be full, there will be additional parking at the proposed Blackfish Resort next door. Mark your calendars for this remarkable celebration on June 17 at 11 a.m.
