Hello again, fellow Creekers.
Awhile back I received a nice letter from a Barbara Himmelberger. She’s been coming up to Christopher Creek for over 45 years now. No matter where in the world she’s traveled she’s always made time for Christopher Creek every year.
Many of Barbara’s family have been up to Christopher Creek as well. Most notably, during the flood of 1970.
This story was particularly interesting to me, because her family stayed in Cabin #7 at Christopher Creek Lodge during the flood. She said that water and mud came right through the cabin.
That same cabin actually burned down a couple of years ago. Looks like Mother Nature intended for that cabin to be gone one way or another (water first then fire).
Barbara tells me that she now stays in Cabin #6 and that a couple of her children have spent part of their honeymoon at our lodge.
I’d like to thank Barbara and her family both for their patronage and her really nice letter.
In that same line of thinking, I’d actually like to thank all of the guests that choose to visit beautiful Christopher Creek. The town really depends on visitors having a good time and boosting our little economy here.
In the two years now (wow, I can’t believe it has already been two years) we’ve had some great guests that have already been back more than a dozen times. I’m glad they consider us their home away from home.
The Christopher Creek Visitors Association has finalized the main events we plan to have this year. The first one is just a couple months away in May. We’ll be getting with Judy Tolle of the Homeowners Association shortly to finalize the dates and work with her to get the word out to everybody. We’d love to have your involvement in the events!
As always, I do 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. Any submitted pictures must be full-size (typically around 1MB per picture). The cutoff time for inclusion in Friday’s article is close of business on Monday.
Thanks again for reading the column.
