Well it looks as if I may have spoken too soon in my last column where I talked about an extended summer. Kind of looks like the cooler weather is on the way. Which is great because fall in Christopher Creek is always beautiful. The sights and smells are truly terrific during the fall.
I promise in the next column I will not bring up the car show (much). It’s just that this promises to be a pretty big deal. From what I understand, this is sort of the first major event since 2005, which was also a car show. We are expecting over 50 cars and roughly 20 street vendors offering everything from massages to jewelry.
Some of the locals have a car or truck they plan on showcasing, including the property manager of Christopher Creek Lodge who has what I would call a monster truck. Diego Dominick has a seriously jacked up, heavily custom Chevy Avalanche 4x4. I think the thing has got to be at least over 12 feet tall, if not taller. It is a monster of a truck that is for sure!
We need volunteers for the car show — please! Any locals interested in helping out, we would love to hear from you (by we I mean Cindy over at Creekside). What we need is a couple of volunteers to help direct traffic and provide help where needed. Also anyone with a spare golf cart who feels like maybe driving people up and down the loop as needed would be good too. For anyone interested in helping out, please call Cindy Fitch of the Creekside Restaurant at (928) 478-4389. She’s the contact person for the car show.
The Christopher-Kohl’s Fire Department is going to be involved also, which is great! They plan on selling ice cream and providing neat services like checking blood pressure and other medical tests. I think it’ll be a great opportunity for folks to meet their fire department and I know kids will get a kick out of seeing a big fire truck close up. Who are we kidding? Most adults will get a kick out of seeing a big fire truck close up!
The Creekside Restaurant is also having a breakfast buffet before the car show starts, which is officially at 10 a.m. The breakfast is only $5 and it starts at 6 a.m. that Saturday morning. From what I’ve been told, it is an all-you-can-eat breakfast. Cindy should be glad a couple of my friends (Troy and Craig) won’t be there. Between the both of them she’d be completely out of food and only have $10 to show for it. I have seen some of the other locals put it down pretty good though — so I am sure that Cindy is more than ready. I know I will be there and am planning to chow down on some great food.
A local named Lynne Silva is also donating a few prizes for the car show and has a neat new business that provides real custom greeting cards that you can order right off the Internet for as low as 62 cents a card. She says you can try one card for free by going to www.ticklecards.com.
Lastly, I always need your help with content and stories! For anyone wanting to submit information from the Christopher Creek area for inclusion in our weekly article, please e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks again for reading the column.
