Front Porch: Drop off the kids and shop in Mill Creek

Parents night out

The Mill Creek Parks and Recreation staff and Youth Advisory Board are setting up an event from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Friday where you can drop your child off and go shopping, go to a movie or take some time off. Kids must be between 4 to 10 in age. The kids will play games, do crafts and can watch their own movie at the City Hall Annex at 15720 Main Street, Suite 130, Mill Creek.

A $10 donation per child and a nonperishable food item for the new Mill Creek Food Bank are suggested. All proceeds benefit the Youth Advisory Board.

But parents must register, because space is limited to 30 kids.

To do so, call Kristen at 425-921–5779.
