The annual Christopher Creek Easter Egg Hunt was a success. About 20 children showed up Easter Sunday with their baskets in hand ready to hunt for eggs.
A few daring ladies and one gentleman showed up in their Easter bonnets. Gary Anderson, president of the homeowners had his Sun Devil hat on.
As everyone ran through the forest gate, the race was on. Nickolas Anderson and Boston Mooney were the first to enter. They lucked out and the weather was nice except for a little wind.
About 400 plastic eggs were hidden along with the ones Creekside colored for the event.
Everyone had a good time and all the children were able to get their share of the eggs.
Best bonnet went to Mimi Tidwell for second year in a row. She looked like she had flowers growing out of her head. Best male bonnet seems to be a mystery. No one was able to give me a name. The mystery man had his made out of jelly beans. Anyone who knows who he was, let me know so I can put it in my next column.
Special thanks to Creekside Restaurant for donating the gift certificates for the Easter bonnet contest.

Don't forget Saturday, April 24 is Kids Kleen-up the Kreek Day. They did such a great job last year that we are hoping all the Kids, grandkids and friends show up again this year to help out. It helps the children to learn to appreciate and care for their community. Children will need to sign in at 10 a.m at the walking bridge on Apple Lane, where they will get a T-shirt and a garbage bag and head out in groups with an adult.
At noon they will have the weigh-in and then a weenie roast for everyone to enjoy. Adults throughout the community can be raking and bagging their properties to show the children that they care.
Afterwards everyone can meet at the walking bridge for a hot dog and a soft drink. If you want to get involved and help out with the children just show up or call Karen Thorton at (928) 478-4133 or Gary Anderson at (480) 839-3542.
