Two weekends until Labor Day weekend, where masses of people drive up to the Rim country to escape the heat from the Valley, and we have to wait 45 minutes to cross Highway 260. I wonder if anyone has ever counted just how many cars come through Christopher Creek on a holiday.
Those visitors should be able to enjoy a nice weekend; the weather is cool and they might get lucky and have a little rain.
You can really feel fall in the air it seems to be the perfect time of year.
There will be no bingo Aug. 24 at the fire hall. James and Jenny Cronk will be renewing their marriage vows in the Valley that Saturday and those who run bingo will be attending that function. However, bingo will resume next Saturday for the Labor Day Holiday.
The Christopher Creek Fire Belles and Beaus along with the Fire Cadets will be hosting a huge Labor Day Fest all day Aug. 31 at the Christopher Creek Fire Department. There will be a raffle for some really nice prizes. Tickets are $1 each or six for $5 and you can get them at the fire station.
There will be a bake sale, crafts, a car wash, homemade tortillas, homemade burritos, pictures of the children on the fire truck and much more. All of this is to raise money for the Fire Belles, Beaus and Cadets.
Get there early. Doors open at 8 a.m. and close at 4 p.m. There will be a potluck at 6 p.m and bingo at 7 p.m.
Everyone is welcome. Come out and show your support.
The Christopher Creek Fire Belles and Beaus are a support organization for the fire department. They provide funding for education, fire prevention, disaster relief, emergency medical equipment, fire equipment and much more.
Men and women of all ages are needed to help them serve the community.

It's been a quiet week as far as the wildlife goes. We haven't seen much, just a lot of skunks on the highway. I wonder if residents are running them over on purpose. Just kidding!
