Hello again, fellow Creekers.
The Christopher Creek Classic Car Show is back! Mark your calendar. The date is Saturday, Oct. 20 starting at 1 p.m. at the Christopher-Kohl’s Fire Department located at 930 E. Christopher Creek Loop.
In previous years this event was really well attended by exhibitors, guests and residents alike, as well as all kinds of car fanatics (and people who just love our great fall weather).
This year’s car show will include hot dog lunches for $1.50. There will also be a bake and book sale, along with raffles, classic cars and fire trucks.
Lastly, there will even be a spaghetti dinner for only $5.
This is a kid-friendly event. Bring the family and come on out and see the fall leaves turning. Eat, drink, relax and have some fun in the cool, clean pines. Don’t forget to vote for your favorite car!
The event is sponsored by Christopher-Kohl’s Fire District. For more information, you may contact Linda at the Christopher-Kohl’s Fire Department, (928) 478-4011.
A new Cub Scout troop has started in the Christopher Creek and Tonto Creek area. The group meets at 1 p.m. Mondays at the Shelby School in Tonto Village right now, as all the youngsters currently enrolled go to that school. Right now there are eight in the group, but organizers are hoping to expand.
They are also looking at forming a Boy Scout troop if they get enough interest.
If anyone wants more information, they can contact Jeff at (928) 478-0010, Danny at (602) 618-2045, or Kevin at (928) 951-0789.
Also, don’t forget the Christopher Creek food drive is going on through Thanksgiving. If you would like to donate a non-perishable or canned food item, there are donation boxes located at the Christopher-Kohl’s Fire Department, Tall Pines Market, Landmark at the Creek, or Creekside Restaurant.
