By Cyndy Gallacher, Mill Creek Women's Club Publicity Chair.
In spite of the obstacles created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Mill Creek Women’s Club is continuing to actively contribute to the well-being of the community through its philanthropic efforts and when social norms are reinstated, will continue to host entertaining in person social events for its members.
The Mill Creek Women’s Club supports Snohomish County Domestic Violence Services, Dawson Place Child Advocacy Center, Woodside School, the Mill Creek Food Bank, the YWCA Pathways for Women and the YWCA Working Wardrobe which assists women with suitable clothing for job interviews and employment.
The Mill Creek Women’s Club will be holding ZOOM meetings for now and is hopeful that it will be able to resume its luncheon meetings and other programs sometime in 2021.
The ZOOM option is for our members only so you will need to join the MCWC before being given access to the ZOOM link. Once you are a member, there is no charge for the ZOOM meeting.
We have some wonderful and entertaining meetings planned for this winter.

Christmas Past ~ ZOOM VIRTUAL DECEMBER PROGRAM: THE DICKENS CAROLERS and Members “CHRISTMAS PAST SHOW & TELL”
The Virtual December Program will consist of both a musical performance by the well known and loved “Dickens Carolers” who have been performing at Christmas time around the greater Seattle area for decades. They’ll provide us with a Virtual Musical Program via ZOOM! So, grab a cup of Yule Tide Cheer and join us online while they sing some of our traditional favorites… and, hey, you can even sing along!
Also, our Virtual December Program will feature some members “Show and Tell” about their favorite “Christmas Past.” We all have special heirlooms, treasured gifts or decorations that come out every year to remind us of our long-revered times with beloved family members. We’ll be inviting members to sign up for the “Christmas Past Show and Tell” portion of our Zoom Program.
And, as we have in previous months – we’ll celebrate our members with the opportunity to win some giveaways to entice online sign-ups and ongoing participation of our interim virtual get-togethers!
You will have the opportunity to win a beautiful Christmas Floral arrangement. Two floral arrangements will be raffled and if you don’t win, you will have the opportunity to purchase one for $40 through our maestro website from November’s Auction (mcwc.maestroweb.com). We will also be giving away three Surprise Gift Certificates to be delivered to the winner’s doorstep by Santa’s Elf.
Our November Auction in support of Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County, Dawson Place Child Advocacy Center, and YWCA Pathways for Women was very successful raising close to $20,000.
The website mcwc.maestroweb.com will be open until the end of December should you wish to donate to worthy causes and/or need a yearend tax donation. Simply go to “Raise the Paddle” to donate.
