Being a part of Teens on the Water was one of the highlights of my summer. It was such a fun way to get community service. What’s better than spending the day on a boat with your best friends, all for a good cause? I’m looking forward to this year’s music festival, and volunteering again!
Thank you so much for the opportunity to help with the setting up and cleaning up of the 2013 Lighthouse Music Fest. I had a great time going with my family for the past several years. The music is always great plus its fun going from boat to boat collect- ing for a cause. At the end of the day my brothers and I enjoyed going into the lighthouse checking out the bands and getting some food. The community service hours are a great benefit. Thanks and see you next year!
I would like to take a moment to tell you what a great opportunity it was to help with the annual music fest celebration. Our family has had so much fun there! It’s always a great time! This year my son Jake said he would come along with me to help with the set up. We caught a ride out to the lighthouse on the police boat, got an up close and personal tour of lighthouse, and the most fun for me was that I had the chance to be with Jake doing something we really take an interest in. When all was said and done, we cruised back in at sunset, stopped at a restaurant and just had an awesome night…Thank you! p.s. Ink me in for next year!
(Some children want to help and are not old enough. Their parents take them to join in the fun “holding up ships for bounty” at the Musicfest)
I like being a volunteer. A volunteer is someone who works but doesn’t get paid. The not getting paid part is so so. I get to dress up like a pirate and ride around in the zodiac all day asking people of they want to buy a t-shirt. I want to help the lighthouse stay forever.
I like being a pirate princess and the lighthouse is a castle. The Lighthouse shows us we are almost home and when we can go fast. I like the lighthouse and want to show it to my kids when I am a Mommy.
"I have done Teens on the Water every year since it started and it is so nice for a chance to really make a difference. Saving Huntington Lighthouse makes sure it will be there for us all and the generations to come!"
"Although volunteering and working on community service hours feels good because you know you are helping people less fortunate or supporting a good cause, the fact is the tasks are often not that exciting. However, working as a Teen on the Water was actually a lot of fun. The weather was beautiful, I met so many great people and even though I'm young I enjoyed the bands. I feel that the lighthouse is an important icon in our harbor and community. I am proud to work to support this great cause and hope the powers that be will welcome me back again next year."
"Working as a Teen on the Water was so much fun that it didn't feel like I was doing community service hours. I enjoyed listening to the music, working on the water and meeting so many nice people. I think the lighthouse is something that the members of our community should cherish. I would be happy to continue to support such a great cause and I look forward to being a Teen on the Water again next year."
