The community had a farewell party for Ken and Patty Lampkin Saturday afternoon at the Landmark. They will be moving to Texas to be with Ken's son. Ken and Patty were managers of the Christopher Creek Mobile Home Park.
Over the last year, Ken has really cleaned up the park. He spent a lot of time landscaping around the area. Every time you would see him, he would be raking up or moving rocks around to make it look better, and he managed to achieve that. Ken was always friendly and willing to help anyone in need. He will be truly missed by friends and neighbors and we wish him the best of luck.
Don't forget, Sunday is Easter, and if you don't feel like cooking, there are a few places you can go and let them do all the work.
Creekside will be offering a special menu of rabbit, ham and lamb, along with their regular menu.
The Landmark will be doing an Easter Brunch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Kohl's Ranch Lodge will be serving Easter Buffet from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and again from 5 to 8 p.m. For reservations call (928) 478-4211.
The Christopher Creek Homeowners Annual Easter Egg Hunt is scheduled for Sunday at 2 p.m at the top of Hillcrest Road. Everyone should meet at the forest gate and bring along a basket. Don't forget to wear your favorite Easter Bonnet. Prizes will be given out to those wearing the best looking bonnet for kids and adults. All children from toddlers to 12 years old come out and hunt for some 400 hidden eggs. Hopefully they will get hidden before Creekside gets a hold of him. Some of the eggs will hold special prizes. Come out and have some fun.
Beware of wildlife
If you are traveling up this way you need to be extra careful in the mornings at sunrise and sunset. The elk are out feeding along the highways and roads. A few have been killed along Highway 260. My daughter came home from school the other day and said I needed to clean up my highway mile because there was a dead elk mooning everyone. She said I needed to go out there and get him off the road. Well, that would be a first for me, and just how was I going to get an 800-pound elk off the road? Thank goodness, I did not have to worry about it. He was gone in a few days. Thanks to whoever moved him. While cleaning my highway mile up over the years, I have come across some strange things, but this was my first elk.
Sunday is Easter and I am wishing all of you a glorious and Happy Easter.
