the above photo was taken around 2007. The store changed owners in February of 2014. The new owners are calling it the Creston Country Market and Deli.  Excellent food and friendly service, plus a mini-market. If you are like me and must have "Half & Half" for your morning coffee ( or afternoon iced coffee), let me tell you that the milk, etc. is delivered on Wednesdays! Also, they have on hand some top tier, fancy cakes  and pastries in a glass dome inside the fridge in the back, for $3 per generous serving. so, if you have a sweet tooth and need more choices than what is on the check out counter, just ask!

     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.
If your club has an activity that you would like to post here, please call Ann at 438-3543 or email her directly  at   ""      Thanks
