Mukilteo Teen Lounge now open
The Mukilteo Teen Lounge opened back up for the 2018-2019 school year last Thursday, and is open from 2 to 5 every Thursday (except for Nov. 1 and holiday breaks) for the rest of the school year.
Local businesses like Starbucks, Papa Murphy’s, Jersey Mike’s, and MOD Pizza donate food for the lounge, so there’s almost always something to eat after school.
The lounge is located at Pointe of Grace Lutheran Church (5425 Harbour Pointe Blvd.) but is not a youth group.
For more information, contact Pointe of Grace Lutheran Church.
