MOD Pizza Coming

doTellLogoHave watched many pizza places come & go over 35 years in Mill Creek. The usual big chains, mostly. Would love to see Pagliacci come to our area, but was still glad to hear that MOD Pizza will open soon in the Mill Creek Plaza because I do like their pizza. They will share the new building ( in old Shari’s spot ) with recently opened, Wells Fargo Bank.

MOD has a different concept. The standard pizza is 11 inches, and is, as they say, infinitely customizable with toppings — all for the same price of $7.17, except for the cheese only which will be a dollar less. Do tell.

After a little digging  into the website for information, did learn there are in fact other size pizzas available & prices for those along with sides, salads & beverages. They do not deliver . “We’ve made a conscious decision not to deliver our pizzas as we feel they are best straight out of the oven. However, if you can’t dine in, you can always take out.” — from MOD FAQ page

For more information about MOD, visit: MOD Pizza

Another recent article in the Seattle Times about the company & its founders. MOD Pizza raising $15M in Expansion Effort  Hope they are not trying to do too much, too quickly. Quality over quantity & all that. We shall see.

WEST Coast Aquatics hold Swim-A-Thon

On Fri & Sat April 4 & 5 2014, swimmers from the WEST Coast Aquatics Swim Team will be holding an official Swim-A-Thon™.

During the Swim-A-Thon™, these competitive swimmers, who range in age from 7 to 17, will swim for 2 hours or up to 200 lengths of their pool. That’s 3 miles!  And they hope to raise $50,000.00 i the process! Do tell.

Swim-A-Thon™ is a nationwide program, with 5% of the money raised going to support national swimming programs, such as Make a Splash, through the USA Swimming Foundation.

WEST provides a safe & positive environment for all levels of swimming from beginner to national-level competitive swimming. Swimmers as young as 3-years-old can learn the basics of swimming & water safety,  progress through the WEST Swim School to pre-team & then onto the competitive team.

The pool is also used by a water aerobics group & a synchronized swimming team. Each summer kids from the community enjoy the fun & activity of the Summer Swim Team. In the fall & winter, the H. M. Jackson & Archbishop Murphy High School swim teams practice at WEST. Zumba classes, personal training & swim team dry land workouts take place in the gym.

Reaching the $50,000.00 fundraising goal will allow WEST to cover facility maintenance costs and resurface the pool decks. With all the traffic the pool has on a daily basis, this resurface will benefit all who use the facility. Please help WEST’s swim team surpass their goal!

WEST is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization focused on promoting fitness for life, healthy habits, and maximizing potential as athletes, students, and members of society.

Learn more about WEST & pledge your support of these dedicated swimmers by making a donation at Or drop-in and swim a few laps!
