Hello again, fellow Creekers.
It’s almost time for the Christopher Creek Annual Golf Cart Light Parade.
This year’s event is shaping up to be the biggest and best yet. At 6:30 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 11 the parade starts at the Landmark Restaurant parking lot and will wind through nearby neighborhoods.
The fun continues afterward at the Creekside Restaurant with early bird dinner specials, free hot chocolate, drink specials, carolers and a bonfire! All cart participants will get a $5 gift certificate from the Creekside Restaurant just for entering. There will be some great prizes for the top three winning carts and also the top three decorated homes.
A special thanks to the following sponsors: Creekside Restaurant, ERA Young Realty, Tall Pines Market, Rim Country Power Sports, Tempe Power Equipment, Grey Hackle Lodge and Christopher Creek Lodge. For more information, please call Dennis or Kelly at (928) 478-0003. Not that anyone needs an incentive to decorate for the holidays, but now you’ve got one!
While we’re on the subject and the spirit of giving, Cindy at the Creekside Restaurant has offered a free meal to all children age 10 and under on Christmas Eve. There are no strings attached, this is simply a kind gesture that Cindy wanted to do. She said, “It’s just something nice for the kids and I am happy to do it.”
There is also likely to be donations for a toys for tots program, but I am waiting to hear back as to where the donations are to be dropped off. My guess is either the fire department or the Creekside Restaurant will be accepting any donations. More information to follow as soon as I know for sure.
OK, everyone, so let’s get out there and turn Christopher Creek into the winter wonderland it can be.
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.
