The Easter egg hunt in Christopher Creek was a big success. The kids showed up with their baskets and bonnets, ready to find the 400 eggs hidden by the Easter bunny.
There were lucky winners of special prizes for finding the most and least number of eggs. Winners were 3-year-old Aiden Doss with his grandfather, Jim O'Neil, 12-year-old Tyler Jensen, 7-year-old Jacqueline Castro and 11-year-old Jessie Flores.
Winners of the best bonnet went to 8-year-old Madeline Poinener and 11-year-old Jessie Flores. In the adult division for best bonnet, Gary Anderson won hands down because he was the only one brave enough to wear one. Or should I say crazy enough?
Special thanks goes out to the Christopher Creek Homeowners Association for putting this function together. Thanks to Debbie Aschbrennar, owner of Tall Pines market, for donating money vouchers to put in the eggs and to John and Olive Matus, owners of Creekside Restaurant, for donating gift certificates for prizes. And thanks to all of you for making it a special day for the little ones.
Fire department business
Don't forget this Saturday, April 22, at 10 a.m. at the fire hall there will be another Grant Steering Committee. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Coming up on Saturday, May 27, the fire department will hold a Fire Safety Expo. Join your neighbors at the fire station to learn more about what to expect this fire season. At 10 a.m. there will be a representative from county emergency management services to present an emergency evacuation plan for Christopher Creek. This is very important for the residents of this area.
The fire wise trailer will be stationed at the fire hall all weekend, with a variety of informative fire safety materials and videos. The Firebelle's will have a wide variety of refreshments available -- brats, hot dogs and ice cream cones -- and they will have a bake sale. They will need help from the ladies and gentlemen who like to bake.
Post this on your calendar and plan to attend this fun and informative function.
