Hello again, fellow Creekers.
Here are a couple of things I should have had in last week’s column:
• Christopher-Kohl’s Fire Department has a Brush Removal Program. CKFD provides a brush/green waste removal service in the local area. Call (928) 478-4011 for information and to schedule the trailer to be dropped at your property, you load it, they come pick up the trailer and haul it to the brush pit for you, for a fee of $30 per trailer load. No bags, just loose in the trailer. Cash or checks only, please.
• Ben Perry, the CKFD volunteer I talked about in the last column, gave me some additional information about himself that I found interesting. He has lived in Arizona his whole life. He came to this area about 10 years ago to enjoy the smaller rural lifestyle. He has a portable sawmill that he uses to turn logs into lumber. He does woodworking for a living, turning trees into spectacular one-of-a-kind furnishings. His favorite hobby is hanging out with his wife and four kids. A memorable time for Ben was about a month ago when his mentor Bill Troutman passed away. He credits Bill with showing him the values of hard work, loyalty and service to the community. Some of the best times they shared were right in Christopher Creek.
One last notice for the Lupus Walk on Saturday, April 27. Additional information is posted on the board at the Landmark. Please help us find a cure for an affliction that affects so many.
Business will pick up soon
Summer is a great time for commerce in the community. Once Memorial Day hits it helps employ seasonal help and create many opportunities. As an example, at Christopher Creek Lodge and the Grey Hackle Lodge we are looking forward to having Patty Scheireman back for professional massages. She can be reached at (928) 951-4775 should you want an excellent massage for yourself.
We would love to try and help others promote their businesses, or even start one. So, if you have a business that might be able to help our visitors further enjoy their stay — let’s talk. Ideas like fishing guides, boating trips, Jeep tours, horseback riding, etc. are all ideas I know that many of our guests would be interested in. Please e-mail and such ideas or requests to jason@christopher creeklodge.com.
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: info@christophercreek lodge.com. 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.
