Christopher Creek Busy With Easter Activities


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 have some specials on the menu for Easter. They will have their classic Ham Dinner, Prime Rib, New England Style Crab Cakes, and they will be serving an appetizer of escargot with garlic butter, along with their regular menu, starting at 4 p.m. and continuing until 9 p.m.

For more information and reservations, call (928) 478-4389.

Kohl's Ranch will be serving an Easter Buffet from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. for $19.95 per person, $11.95 children under 12 and $5.95 for children under 6.

For more information and reservations, call (928) 478-4211.

Someone said he spotted a large furry rabbit hanging around Christopher Creek -- the one who will be hiding eggs on Easter Saturday. The Christopher Creek Homeowners Association will be sponsoring the Annual Easter Egg Hunt, which is scheduled for Saturday at 2 p.m. at the top of Uphill Drive near the forest gate.

There will be hunting areas for toddlers through age 5 and another for children ages 6 through 12. Children should bring their own basket to find the 400 eggs the Ole Rabbit will hide.

Some of the eggs will contain special prizes, and there will be additional prizes for the funniest and cutest bonnets worn by both girls and boys. Immediately following the Egg Hunt, there will be a Best Bonnet contest among the adults, so get working to create the best-looking Easter bonnet ever seen on Elk Run Boulevard.

There will be terrific prizes for outstanding male and female bonnets, and pictures will appear in their next newsletter and America's least wanted. Bring the kids out for some fun.

Get ready for an old-fashioned melodrama.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Apple Lane is getting ready for its annual Christopher Creek Melodrama.

It will kick off with a casting call for all interested persons. They have a need for actors/actresses (four or five males and four or five females), stage crew, lighting and sound personnel, scenery constructors/painters and various other "behind the scenes" persons.

The first casting call will be held Tuesday, April 10, and Wednesday, April 11, at 7 p.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Christopher Creek.

The first rehearsal will be Thursday, April 12. Subsequent rehearsals will be held two to three times weekly, on Tuesdays, Wednesday or Thursdays from 7 to 9 p.m.

The performance will be presented June 28, 29 and 30.

For more information, please contact Karl Mann, producer, at (928) 478-4008 or Pamela Steven, director, at (928) 468-6372.

This is always fun to get involved in and a lot of fun to watch.

I will keep you informed as this production moves along.
