Celebrate Autumn In Christopher Creek



Christopher Creek's Second Annual Invitational Car Show is this Friday, Oct. 21 and Saturday, Oct 22 in Christopher Creek. The event is limited to 100 classic, hot rod and custom vehicles. All proceeds will benefit the Christopher/Kohl's Fire Department. There will be vendors along the road selling their wares.

This is a good time to come to Christopher Creek and look at the fall colors. The leaves are in full color and you can smell fall in the air. And you can get a look at some awesome vehicles. A walk through Christopher Creek this time of year is gorgeous. Come out and enjoy the crafts, food and fun.


The fall colors are expected to be at peak perfection this weekend on the Rim, so make plans for a drive up the mountain. Be sure to include a stop in Christopher Creek for the community's car show and ice cream social. If you are an early riser, a pancake breakfast is also part of the festivities.

The Firebelles, along with the Christopher Creek Homeowners Association, will host a pancake breakfast, bake sale and ice cream social on Saturday, Oct. 22. The pancake breakfast is from 7 a.m. until all the food is gone, around 10 a.m. The price is $3.50 for adults and $2.50 for children under 12 -- all you can eat at one price. You can't beat that. Come out and see our "local celebrity chefs" at work. From 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m., they will have a bake sale with lots of goodies at great prices! The Firebelles cookbooks will also be available.

The ice cream social will be from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. There will be chocolate, strawberry, butterscotch and caramel toppings on their terrific soft ice cream. Prices are $2 a bowl and $1 a cone. Come out and enjoy all of this at the fire hall. All donations go to the EMS education fund and the Fire Department Equipment Fund.

According to Dave Ezzell, president of the Christopher Creek Homeowners Association, the next meeting will be at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 29 at the fire hall. Agenda items include fall cleanup and decorating the highway for Christmas. You do not have to live right here in Christopher Creek to be a member of the association; its boundaries extend all the way to Ponderosa Springs. If you would like to become involved with decorations -- and the group can use all the help it can get -- just show up. If you have a specific decoration you would like to see along the highway, just buy it and give it to Ezzell. Every year an effort is made to improve on the decorations so everyone can enjoy them.

Our county supervisor, Tommie Martin, will attend the meeting. If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to bring up, or something you want on the agenda, call Dave at (928) 478-5066 or Karen Thorton at (928) 478-4133. This is the time to voice your opinions to the county supervisor, so please plan to attend.

Don't forget the Children's Annual Halloween Party is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 29. Children should arrive at the Landmark by 4 p.m. for hot dogs and chips. The costume judging will be at 4:30. By 5 p.m., they will board the wagon for trick-or-treating throughout the community. If you are interested in treating the little goblins, be sure your porch lights are on. The trailer route covers Apple Lane and Columbine, with stops at Tall Pines Market and a costume parade at Creekside. Those of you who want to pass out candy and who don't live on those roads, may show up along the route. The trailer should return to the Landmark around 7 p.m. For more information call Judy Tolle at (928) 478-0508.

Don't forget, the judges will be coming around to be scared and amazed at your decorations for the Best Decorated House Contest. Be sure your lights are on that evening.
