Should Be A Fun Labor Day Weekend



File photo

Lynda St. John will perform Friday, Sept. 4 at the Double D in Tonto Village and then on Saturday, Sept. 5 and Sunday, Sept. 6 at Creekside in Christopher Creek.

Labor Day is almost upon us and the people will be coming up the mountain in droves. Be careful when you are on the highway and take your time driving.

The Firebelles will be having a pancake breakfast on Saturday, Sept. 5 from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Adults $4 and kids $2. It is all you can eat pancakes with sausage and orange juice. Why would you want to cook with those kind of prices?

There will also be a bake sale, so you can take some dessert home for dinner. If you want to bake, just drop off your goodies at the fire department. All proceeds go to the Christopher/Kohl’s Fire Department.

Saturday, Sept. 5 and Sunday, Sept. 6, Lynda St. John will be the entertainment at Creekside starting at 6 p.m. Lynda has a wonderful voice and can really belt out a song. Go over and listen for a while. Bud Light John will be the DJ on the patio with his karaoke. Sounds like a fun weekend.

At the time of this writing, the Christopher/Kohl’s Fire Department has a crew out with the new engine on the Wagon Wheel Fire. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the firefighters wishing them the best in getting this fire out, keeping themselves and everyone safe and getting all of those people that were displaced from the fire back home.


Bailey Billings has a birthday coming up on Sept. 6. Bailey is the grandson to Doris and George Billings. Bob Lusson who dedicated many years to the Christopher/Kohl’s Fire Department and still helps with traffic when there is a call, will be adding another candle to his cake Sept. 7. Betty you will need to keep the fire extinguisher close to that cake. Teresa Purtee who is principal of the Payson Christian School and a resident of Christopher Creek will also be celebrating Sept. 7, and my mom Marian Serge will add another candle to her cake back in Pennsylvania on Sept. 10. Wishing all of you a happy birthday.

Columnist needed

I am still here! Surely there is someone in Christopher Creek who can write? Just kidding, I mean write this column. I know for a fact that there are some really talented people out there. It is time to come forward. For those of you who don’t know it, I am in Payson. Yes, I still have Wooden Nickel Cabins. I just have great managers, so I can take a break here and there. Yes, I still know what is going on in the Creek, but it is time for someone else to give a new aspect to Kreek Kapers. I know there is someone out there. Feel free to call me if you have any questions and I can help you in any way. If you are interested in writing this column, please call the editor, Tom Brossart at (928) 474-5251.
