NEWSFLASH ::: Everyone in Creston has now received the nice letter from the CATCH fund leaders which details their needs for local funds ( and grant funds ) to finish the renovation of our NEW Community Center, along with details of the Creston Live Oak Tree Sculpture where you can donate cash and have a "leaf" inscribed with your name or the name of your business. Please help the community with this important project. The Center will be used for local functions and for a nice meeting place for the many clubs that are active in our area. I personally have already dropped off a donation into the mail box this morning to have the "leaf" inscribed with the name of this web site !! If you know of a local business in our area, please encourage them to make a donation.
The Women's Club has cancelled their Indian Summer Dinner Party. If you purchased a ticket already, your money will be refunded.

Wednesday, December 24th, around 9 am, the street in front of the Post Office becomes a street party. Over 250 friends and neighbors usually attend. Lots of folks bring baked goods and some men make breakfast burritos over an open barbeque trailer, and some men make cobbler in Dutch Ovens, and someone makes two or three huge pots of coffee over a "spit" of firewood, and then, at 11 AM, Santa Claus arrives and the kids line up in front of the post office, and the Friends of the Library hand out kids books to the kids, and then the Women's Club hands out over 100 age-appropriate gifts to our local kids, and it is a very special tradition dating back to the 1920's from what I have read. Please make a note on your calendar to join us with this street party. Some folks even wear Santa type caps and there is non-stop greeting of the neighbors. We are blessed to have a community event like this.
