City Of Mill Creek | 5 From the Editor IT FEELS LIKE WE’RE BARELY INTO SUMMER, yet here we are talking about fall. While much of our lives is based on the social media clock of what’s happening tonight or this weekend, there is still structure to our seasons of life. Looking ahead in the coming weeks, kids will be back in school and settling into fall routines. People are now planning beyond their summer vacations, whether it’s looking for a community activity or opportunities for volunteerism. This issue of City Connection provides a glimpse of some of our recreational offerings to help you plan your schedules beyond the end of summer. Registra- tion for fall and winter classes begins August 13. We also have information about ways to get involved in our community. Service opportunities abound in Mill Creek for people of all ages. Whether it’s supporting those in the U.S. Armed Forces through Operation Gratitude, tackling an overgrown trail, helping keep order at the Veterans Day parade, leading your neighborhood’s disaster-response planning, or volunteering with a recreation program, we have something for everyone. If sharing opinions is more of your thing, there is opportunity for that, too. This fall, we will be sharing the City’s capital improvement plan and the 2019– 2020 biennium budget. Your opinion matters to us. Help shape the future of Mill Creek by weighing in on what matters most to you. Look inside for details about how to provide feedback. Though some areas of our City may change, we are unwavering in our ded- ication to making Mill Creek an exceptional place to call home. Come explore what’s happening!
