Hello again, fellow Creekers.
So, after last week’s article I got a few people who told me a bit more history about the Grey Hackle that I did not know.
What I’ve learned so far is that the Grey Hackle was originally the local hardware store and also it once was a cross-country ski shop. I’ve also been told I should reach out to Nancy Olson and also Rod Britain for additional history and stories related to the Grey Hackle.
Last week, 12 women met for lunch in town to celebrate Olive Matus’ and Rhea Hoedle’s birthdays. Birthday cards were passed around for everyone to enjoy. A lot of reminiscing and a lot of happy tears were shed.
Olive and Rhea looked great and I am not going to tell you their ages. It was nice to get away and see everyone. Thanks Mikey for this neat story of reconnecting with old friends and sharing good times.
One last reminder that this Saturday is the big community yard sale and also vendor gathering over by the Tall Pines Market. All of this is free. For additional information or to reserve a spot, please call Sandy, between 7 a.m. and noon, at (928) 478-4550.
The Tonto Watershed Improvement Group (TWIG) has delivered its amended grant proposal on time. The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) had asked for more clarification on some items and also made some additional suggestions.
These have been added and now we await the final disposition.
As a reminder, TWIG will be on the radio at KMOG in Payson on May 28 at 9 a.m. Rev. Larry Fultz says “this is a great opportunity to get our message out to the public.” For more information, please contact Rev. Larry Fultz at (480) 595-6741.
I spoke with Linda at the Christopher-Kohl’s Fire Department and she is happy to report that right now everything is quiet, but that they are fully geared up for Memorial Day weekend just in case.
