Tomorrow, Saturday, Dec. 4, there will be snow in the Mill Creek area, no matter how sunny or rainy the skies may be.

Gold Creek Community Church, in conjunction with the city of Mill Creek Recreation Program, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office and UPS, is bringing in truckloads of snow from Stevens Pass for sledding, building snowmen and other activities.

In addition to the snow, a craft bazaar with more than 30 vendors will take place on the church grounds. UPS is bringing in a truck for attendees to donate food, blankets and clothing to the Union Gospel Mission in Seattle.

“We created this event as an opportunity to give back to our community,” said Larry Ehoff, Snow Days coordinator. “It is our hope that many will get involved by giving to others less fortunate than ourselves. The food banks are typically stressed during the winter months and we have this opportunity to reach out, in a concerted effort to help in this season of giving.”

Snow Day will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the church, 4326 148th St. SE.
