With all of this rain, the forest is really green and it has been really nice not having to worry about fire danger.
Soon, the leaves will be turning and the elk will be bugling, and it's the perfect time to get away and come up to Christopher Creek for Labor Day weekend.
Plenty of things are going on, so get out and enjoy yourself as summer wraps up.
The Landmark Restaurant & Saloon presents Grillin' & Chillin', an outside Beach Party. Beach attire is welcome. The fun starts at 11 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 31 and will run until 7 p.m. There will be live entertainment, Bernie's Beer Butt Chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs and ribs. You can walk outside and visit with the crafters.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Apple Lane will have its annual steak fry at 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 30. They supply all the meat, potatoes, beans and bread. All you need to bring is either a salad or dessert. Everyone is welcome to attend. According to Gwen Rowley, it's always a fun event.
There will be a potluck luncheon around noon, Sunday after services at the Christopher Creek Bible Fellowship Chapel. Everyone is welcome to attend and there will be games and lots of fun.
Last week, I went to the ladies pool tournament at the Landmark. I had a great time trying to play pool. I hadn't had a cue stick in my hands for about eight years. Nancy Olson talked me into going and I am glad I did, although I think the ladies from Tonto Village thought I needed some more practice, especially when I went to break and the cue ball left the table and headed for Ethel Cain and Pat Baines who were sitting at a table in front of the pool table. Needless to say, they decided to sit far away from me when it was my turn to break again. I won one game and that's not too bad.
Next Tuesday, the pool tournament will be at the Landmark. So, ladies, if you like to have fun and shoot nine-ball, they meet at 6:30 p.m. every Tuesday, either at the Landmark or the Double D in Tonto Village. Come out and have some fun and meet some really neat ladies.
You don't have to be a pool shark, trust me.
