The second annual Christopher Creek International Car Show last weekend was a success. About 100 awesome vehicles lined the streets of Christopher Creek.
It was a gorgeous weekend, with leaves turning vibrant colors of yellow and orange. As you walked down the streets, "oldies" music could be heard over a loud speaker, and you could hear the crushing of leaves under your feet as you strolled along looking at cars.
Marty Rios of Hunter Creek had his Model A replica of the first original state police patrol car in 1931. Marty was dressed in uniform and said the car has been in many parades, fund-raisers and events, with dignitaries riding and waving. It was a beautiful copper color because Arizona is the copper state.
According to George Ahlmann, treasurer for the Firebelles, the pancake breakfast, ice cream social, and bake sale were total successes. The gross sales amounted to $660.74, with more than 100 breakfasts sold. That's a lot of pancakes being flipped. Thanks to Chief Ray Larsen and Dave Ezzell who did the flipping. I understand they did not drop any on the ground. Thanks to everyone who worked hard on the event and to everyone who baked for the bake sale.
Saturday, Oct. 29 will be a very busy day. Starting at 10 a.m the Christopher Creek Homeowners Association will have a meeting at the fire hall. Agenda items include fall cleanup and decorating the highway for Christmas. You do not have to be a member to be involved in the project. They need all the help they can get, and it is for everyone to enjoy. If you have something special you would like to see along the highway, give Dave Ezzell a call at (928) 478-5066.
County Supervisor Tommie Martin will attend the meeting. If you have any questions or concerns, this is the time to voice them. Please plan to attend.
