Hello again, fellow Creekers.

The Shelby School Cub Scout Pack #7787 took its first day trip on Monday, Sept. 24. Ryan Reed, Shelby School father and program manager at the Tonto Rim Christian Camp, gave the boys a tour of the fish hatchery and led them on an hour-and-a-half walk down the Tonto Creek to the camp. They learned about the purpose of stocking fish and about trout varieties. During their hike, they were given important safety tips including the buddy system, and they saw evidence of wildlife, specifically deer and bear.

Pack #7787, The Shelby School and Reed are planning more activities at the Christian Camp, which everyone is looking forward to. Some other Christopher Creek residents participating are Pack Leader and Shelby grandfather Jeff Daniels, Michael and Brandon Boggess and Ryan Reed.

“Cruise” into Fall at CC

Remember the Christopher Creek Classic Car Show returns 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, attendees and 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, raffles, classic cars and fire trucks. 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, 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, contact Linda at the Christopher-Kohl’s Fire Department, (928) 478-4011.
