The Burger and Brats sale and bake sale was a success over the busy Labor Day Weekend. Special thanks goes out to everyone who helped. Phyllis Agnew, Pat Oliver, Vicki Grootegoed, Bianca Malmin, Karen Thornton, Eileen Kittock, Laura Alvin, Joy Nutter, Kathy and Hanna Rowe and Debbie Rotstein and to the master chef, Mark Alvin, who cooked all the brats and burgers. To everyone who baked for the sale and everyone who showed up to eat. Thanks everyone.
Be on the look out, there have been rattlesnakes in Hunter Creek. Last week someone killed a small one on their deck and said he saw more near the creek.
It seems like all the animals have had the babies. Near the pond the herons had babies, and talk about funny! When you see a bird as big as them in a nest high up in a tree it is pretty funny.
The male heron stood guard over those babies for many weeks and the nest was some 6 feet wide. As you look at these big birds in a tree you wonder just how they can stay up there during these storms, but they somehow manage.
There have been bear cubs seen and elk and deer babies.
It was a very busy weekend in Christopher Creek and the weather was pretty nice and cool. The last holiday of the summer is over and Highway 260 was non-stop on Monday.
