The Labor Day celebration by the Christopher Kohls Firebelles was a complete success. The ladies raised $492.50 with the silent auction and $56 from cookbook sales.
Randy Dawson, who is a volunteer on the Christopher Kohls Fire Department, was a brave one, standing in for the chief in the "Sweeten the Chief Contest." He received plenty of whipped cream in the face and made it especially fun for all the kids that showed up. He went down to their level so they could hit him with the whipped cream. For those of you that don't know Randy, he is a kid at heart. I don't know who had more fun, Randy or the kids throwing the pies.
A great big thanks to all who helped out and bought items in the silent auction. These ladies deserve a special thanks for they all worked very hard: Sandy Kalmar, Vicki Grootegood, Eileen Kittock, Ginny Cronk, and Penny Wells. They also sold tickets for the quilt raffle which will be in October. There are two quilts being raffled: "There are bears in Christopher Creek" quilt and a quilt made with the bow-tie design. You can call the fire station at (928) 478-4011 for info or tickets.
There will be a celebration of Floyd Wilson's life at 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 11 at Creekside Steakhouse in Christopher Creek. Show up to remember this wonderful man.
Tuesday, September 14th will be the 25th Annual Flatlanders Party in Christopher Creek. It's a potluck.
