Veterans honored, remotely
The City of Mill Creek's annual Veteran's Day event was Nov. 11, online. The commemorative video is available here: https://bit.ly/3fbtBCX. It aired on the City's Facebook page at 9 a.m. on Veteran's Day. The pre-recorded ceremony was recorded at the Mill Creek Veterans Monument, 15429 Bothell-Everett Hwy. Due to the social distancing mandate from Gov. Jay Inslee, no in-person participation was permitted this year. Following the online ceremony, a reverse parade took place on Main Street between 155th Street SE (the Cold Stone Creamery) and 153rd Street SE (the corner of the former University Bookstore).

Pick up meals, for kids
The Everett Public Schools meal pick-up is usually Wednesdays, but for the holiday week it is scheduled on Tuesday, Nov. 24. Mill Creek community members who would like to pick up meals for their students, ages 1 to 18, can pre-order by filling out a form here: https://form.jotform.com/203007011175034.
Soy milk is offered at each meal pick-up site for students with milk allergies. Further dietary accommodation requests require medical documentation. Please contact Jenna Lewis for further details:[email protected] Pick-up times on non-holiday weeks are every Wednesday. Meals can be picked up at any of listed locations, not just the locations that are associated with the school the child is enrolled in. Pick-up recipients are parents, guardians or students receiving the meals. Weekly pre-order forms are needed for meal-kit availability and pre-orders are best -- each location will have extra meal kits on hand but there are no guarantees that your preferred choice will be available. Students do not need to be present when picking up meals. Each meal kit contains five days of breakfast, lunch, fruit, veggies and milk. Masks are required during pick-ups.
