“The judging took place on Dec. 18th from 7-9:00.   The winners received a snowflake tree ornament this year.  The 3 Grand Prize winners received a Gorham Silver bell ornament.  We increased this category from 1 to 3 from last year.  Years ago we had 5 or 6 categories & no individual subdivision awards.  They also keep the coveted Elf sign for 2 weeks in their yard.  (the signs are turned back into the MCCA after the first to be used next tear.)  Last years winners were not eligible.  The Judges are past winners & they do not judge their own neighborhood, but get assigned other ones.  The Elf’s had a lot of fun & the winners were very excited.  Do tell.

We appreciate the hardwork, creativity & the gift these families have given our MCCA community. Thank you to the 2013 Elf Judges who were all past recipients of an Elf Award.” — Jac-e & Steve Albertsen

A big thank you to Steve & Jac-e Albertsen, Elf Award Judge Facilitators for providing all the  information & helping to organize the event this year.


MC Town Center Best Lifestyle Center & Open-Air Mall

forumPicwebOur very own, Mill Creek Town Center will be featured in a television segment filmed locally, as the Official Best Lifestyle Center & Open-Air Mall in Washington for 2013.

The feature will be shown on FOX Seattle & on The Discovery Channel nationally in October 2013 & placed on the national travel site

Look for the segment on:

Wednesday, October 2 at 5:00 am E/P on The Discovery Channel

Saturday, October 5 at 2:00 pm on KCPQ FOX channel 13 in Seattle

Mill Creek Town Center is an amazing lifestyle center located in the scenic city of Mill Creek, Washington. Nestled among nature trails & creeks, the outdoor mall has a park-like setting. With over 80 retail stores, boutiques, restaurants & services, you’ll always find friendly service & something unique. Open 7 days a week, the Mill Creek Town Center is located 1/2 mile north of SW 164th Street on Bothell-Everett Hwy in Mill Creek WA. Do Tell.

The Official Best Of originated in January 2007 as a travel TV show & website covering only a few states. Today Official Best Of covers 28 states with the remaining states plus other countries being covered in 2013.

One distinction that sets Official Best Of apart from many other travel sites is that it doesn’t accept advertising on either its television programs or its website. The selection of attractions is by merit, and lesser-known but worthy attractions are given the same attention as famous ones. As with each TV show production, the website offers a great resource for those planning a vacation, day trip or outing for residents within Washington as well as folks all across the country.
