Hello again, fellow Creekers.
The Christopher Creek Homeowners Association is sponsoring two big events this Saturday, April 7.
The first event is a celebration of Earth Day beginning at 11 a.m. in front of the Tall Pines Market. This event is for kids ages 10 and older. Help to make the Earth a little bit more beautiful by picking up the trash along the Christopher Creek Loop. Bags will be provided to collect the trash. All aluminum cans will be donated to the Humane Society of Central Arizona (in Payson) to help care for animals. The Christopher Creek Lodge will match in an additional donation the amount of money the kids are able to collect in cans for the Humane Society. Adults are welcome and needed to walk along with and help supervise. What a great way to celebrate earth day: help clean up the beautiful earth, help animals and get some good exercise.
The second event of the day is the annual CCHA Easter egg hunt. It will begin at 1 p.m. on Columbine Road, 200 yards up from the Walking Bridge.
This Easter egg hunt is for kids ages 12 and under. As always, prizes will be awarded to kids in different age groups for their success in finding eggs. There have been reports of a very large bunny already hanging out on Columbine. Get ready for the big day tomorrow.
Also, coming up in May is the Christopher Creek Annual Chili Cook Off and Kentucky Derby Party Saturday, May 5, 1 p.m. at Landmark. Bring a crock pot of homemade chili and have your chili there by 2 p.m. If you bring chili, you can taste for free. It’s $3 per person for those who would like to participate but do not bring any chili. For more information, contact at Kelly (928) 478-0003.
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 email 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.
