Come bring your friends and family to join in this wonderful kick-off to the Holiday Season in Mill Creek. Proudly sponsored by the City of Mill Creek, Mill Creek Town Center and Mill Creek Rotary Club.


The public is invited to a significant Veteran’s Day Ceremony at the Veteran’s Monument in Library Park at 15429 Bothell Everett Highway in Mill Creek, WA 98012. This event will take place precisely at 11:11AM on Friday, 11/11/11. 

The City of Mill Creek is sponsoring this event with the assistance of the city’s Arts and Beautification Advisory Board. U.S. Navy Commander Daniel Limberg, Executive Officer of the U.S. Naval Station-Everett, will speak. Merrill Gardens-Mill Creek will bring a group of residents to the event in their bus. Do tell.

There are 25 new names that were recently engraved in the monuments. Some of those veterans are planning to attend. Also, one of the newly added veterans and a Mill Creek resident, passed away recently. His son plays the trumpet in the symphony in North Carolina, and he is flying here to play for the ceremony in honor of his father.

The treaty to end World War I was signed at 11:11AM on the 11th day of the 11th month in the year 1918. This day was named “Armistice Day” to commemorate the date when the truce was declared and hostilities ceased. It is the day that we honor all veterans of the United States Military Forces.
