Chief Ray Larsen of Christopher/Kohl's Fire Department made some children very happy this last weekend. He promised them a ride in the fire truck and Sunday afternoon, he kept his promise.
Austin Malmin and Leo Zanotto went to church Sunday and when Pastor Ed Hepworth ask for any prayer requests, little Austin got up and told everyone he was going to get a ride on the fire truck. Leo also stood up and said he was going too.
Fire season is upon us. It is generally considered to be from May to July when the rains come. That is, we hope they come, but because we had a below-average moisture this winter, we need to be extra careful.
I am glad to see many residents cleaning up. Olive Matus' trailer park is doing a terrific job. I have noticed over the past few weeks that they have raked and burned a lot of debris.
Many others need to get on the ball and clean out their gutters from all the pine needles collected over the winter and rake up their yards.
Don't forget the free pit for dumping debris is usually open on Saturdays, and this can save you money.
There is still plenty of room left if you want to get in on the Rusty Cooper Memorial Golf Tournament. It is Saturday, May 15 at Pine Meadows Golf Course in Overgaard. Call Karen Thorton at (928) 478-4133, or Patty Boesling at (928) 535-5148. This is a fun event with lots of great prizes.
Do you have crafts to sell? There are still spaces available for the Antique Car Show in Christopher Creek Saturday, May 15 and Sunday, May 16. If interested, call Debbie Aschbrenner at (928) 478-4550 or Susan Keown at (928) 478-4221.
