Policy for Lighthouse on hiring gate guards: 32 applicants for 10-13 positions. No need to
micromanage hiring process – Lighthouse has a mandate to hire best people for the job. We may
be able to take on new people in the later part of the season to give them experience.

o Camp asking for camp 2-3 days a week for 75 kids, no.
