Fourteen ladies got together this week at the Christopher Creek Bible Chapel for a day of crafts. Bianca Malmin showed the ladies how to make some wonderful hats. After they had fun making their hats, the ladies headed up to Pine for a wonderful lunch at the Randall House. The Randall House has been a tradition since 1881. Some of the ladies have never been there, but were truly impressed with their lunch, and the service.
On Oct. 14, 1998 Barbara and Patrick O’Connor opened the Randall House and the food they offer is prepared in-house for the guests. This cozy home of years of hard work, laughter, wonderful food and hospitality is reflected even today in the service that is given to their customers. They offer a healthy and tantalizing alternative, using fresh vegetables and fruits, good quality meats and cheeses, and homemade dressings and desserts made from scratch. They offer espresso drinks and European salads, wonderful deli sandwiches, and those hot off the grill. They offer every kind of hot tea possible, frozen smoothies, and Italian soda,. Did I mention homemade desserts? Mmm good. They are only opened for breakfast and lunch, the Randall family and their proprietors, Barbara and Patrick O’Connor, invite people to participate in the tradition of hospitality with their home-baked goodies and specially prepared meals with garden-fresh fruits and vegetables. For more information, give them a call at (928) 476-4077.
Ralph Bryan will be adding another candle to his cake on Oct. 7, and his wife Mary Bryan will be celebrating her birthday on Oct. 8. If the two of you celebrate together, I think you are going to need a large cake for all those candles. You know I am just kidding, but we all know you have been in Christopher Creek a long time. Just make sure you have a fire extinguisher near that cake, Mary.
Rick Schantz will be celebrating another birthday on Oct. 8. Rick is the safety officer for the Christopher/Kohl’s Fire Department and he is the one who hauls the trailer for the Fire Wise Project. Many a days you see him driving around with his little dog picking up debris to take to the burn pit.
Wishing all of you a happy birthday.
