Front Porch: Free flu shots Saturday
The shots will be given at the Molina clinic at 15 SW Everett Mall Way, Everett.
Burn ban lifted: Most local burn bans were lifted effective Wednesday morning. The bans were put into effect due to dry conditions. People still should check with their local fire department for any burning restrictions in their community.

Join the Goblin Splash: The Forest Park Swim Center welcomes ghosts, pirates and princesses and other costumed friends ages 3-15 to a fun Halloween-themed swim party from 7-8:30 p.m. Friday.
Kids and their parents can show off their costumes while playing on-deck games. Fill treat bags with prizes and enjoy the frivolities and refreshments.
Be sure to bring swim suits and towels. Lifeguards will be on duty. Pool rules require an adult to accompany children ages 7 and younger in the water and stay within arm's reach -- one adult for every two children.
In lieu of open swim admission, swimmers can "treat" their community by bringing generous non-perishable food donations for the Volunteers of America Everett Food Bank. Monetary contributions also are accepted and benefit the Parks Scholarship Fund.
For regular admission prices and pool rules, go to www.everettwa.org/parks or call 425-257-8309.
